Don’t waste your time there with ‘Pakistan’: Harbhajan to Gary Kristen

Srinagar: Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh has suggested former South Africa cricketer and current Pakistan coach Gary Kristen to not waste time with Pakistan after its early exit from T20 World 2024.

Kirsten was appointed head coach of Pakistan in April and was part of the team on the England tour as well as in T20 World Cup 2024 where Pakistan were knocked out before the Super 8.

In his post on X, Harbhajan wrote, “Don’t waste your time there [with Pakistan] Gary. Come back to coach Team India,” he wrote for the ex-South African batter under whom India won the 2011 ODI World Cup”.

“A great coach, mentor, honest and very dear friend to all our 2011 team,” he added.

Earlier Kirsten was quoted as saying that only those players will be part of the Pakistan team going forward who value unity, focus on fitness and improve their skill set.

Reports quoted, Kirsten telling Pakistan team after its exit from the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, said that the fitness level of the players is not up to the mark.

Kirsten added that the team is also far behind in terms of skill level as compared with the rest of the world.

Despite playing so much cricket, no one knows which shot to play and when, Kirsten further stated.

The former South African cricketer also said that, ever since he has joined, he has noticed that there is no unity in this team. Kirsten said that players don’t support each other and he hasn’t seen a situation like this before despite working with many teams.

Kirsten has clearly stated that the players who improves these aforementioned things will be in the team, otherwise they will be excluded.

Pakistan beat Ireland by three wickets in their last match of the T20 World Cup 2024 which was held at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Lauderhill, Florida on Sunday.

Pakistan’s shock defeat to the USA and loss to India meant they were eliminated from the event before the Super 8.

The win against Ireland ensured that Pakistan finished third in Group A with two wins from four games.
