Karachi: Nov 16, 2012

 

Former England coach Peter Moores has made it clear that his recent visit to Pakistan has nothing to do with any job with the cricket establishment here, but he didn’t rule out a consultative role in the future.

Moores said he had been specially invited by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to meet with board officials and former players and have a look at the existing domestic structure as well as the system under which the national and regional academies were being run.

“I think I have come here to have a look and get views of some former greats like Javed Miandad and Intikhab Alam. I have come here to listen and learn and find out what happens and see how I can help move thing forward in Pakistan cricket,” Moores said.

“I think the first thing for a coach is to listen and it would be wrong to think you can walk in suddenly and give your views. There is lot of expertise in Pakistan cricket and lots of information is already here. The key is to listen and know if there is anything I can add to that which would probably be structural,” he said.

Moores, who is now coach of the Lancashire team and has worked as head coach of the England team and as director of the ECB academy, said there was already a huge amount of passion for cricket among PCB officials.

“I am not part of the system here I can come here and give an opinion but I need some time to look and find out what is going on and then you start to evolve a way forward.

Answers will come from people here,” he added.

He agreed that Pakistan cricket needed to keep on looking at ways to improve its domestic structure as it is key to being a successful cricket nation.
