Musharraf in Zia’s defence

Islamabad: Despite the poor showing of the national team in recent meets, Pakistan President Gen. Pervez Musharraf has praised his army colleague and PCB chairman, Lt Gen. Tauqir Zia, for doing a good job to prepare the team for World Cup.

“Tauqir is a capable man and doing a good job,” Musharraf said. The PCB has been severely criticised for the slide in performance of the Pakistan team.

Asked if he was happy with the “hiring and firing” of coaches by the PCB ahead of the World Cup, Gen. Musharraf said, “Whatever they are doing is in preparation for the World Cup.”
