Moin Khan, the former wicketkeeper-batsman who represented Pakistan from 1990 to 2004, has expressed his concerns regarding a noticeable communication gap between the players and the coaching staff following Pakistan’s disheartening seven-wicket loss to India in the ODI World Cup 2023. This match took place on October 14 in Ahmedabad and marked Pakistan’s second defeat against India in just two months.

The defeat, which drew criticism from fans and cricket experts, including former Pakistan captains, prompted Moin Khan to shed light on a potential language barrier that could be hampering effective communication within the team.

The coaching staff responsible for Pakistan includes a South African trio consisting of Mickey Arthur, Andrew Puttick, and Morne Morkel, who serve as the team director, batting coach, and bowling coach, respectively. In addition, Grant Bradburn, a New Zealander, holds the position of head coach for the former world champions.

Moin Khan pointed out, “In my opinion, there is a communication gap because the majority of the coaching staff primarily uses English. The coaches, trainers, and players, as I perceive it, might not be effectively communicating with each other. The team’s dwindling performance may also be linked to their fitness levels,” in his conversation with A Sports.
