Karachi: Pakistan's former captain Javed Miandad has been sent to Sri Lanka by the Cricket Board to motivate the country's players before the World Twenty20.
"Let me make one thing clear there is a full support staff with the team in Sri Lanka. Dav Whatmore looks after the batting, Mohammad Akram after the bowling and Julian Fountain is for fielding. I am not going there on any coaching assignment," Miandad, who is also Director General (Cricket) in the Pakistan Cricket Board, told the media before leaving for Sri Lanka.
"My main task is to go there and try to motivate the players and raise their confidence. If any player is having any technical issues he can come to me for advice," he said.
