Former Pakistan skipper Aamer Sohail said the current Pakistan team is a house divided and accused national coach Intikhab Alam for that.

 

The former captain said that Alam has introduced a culture of intrigue and bickering in the side.

 

In an interview on Geo TV, Sohail alleged that ever since Intikhab had been made the national team coach, bickering and internal politics had plagued the team.

 

"I would just say that handling and coaching the Pakistan team is beyond someone like Intikhab Alam," said Sohail, who recently quit as the Director of the National Cricket Academy in Lahore after developing differences with the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board Ejaz Butt.

 

Sohail said he had never supported the appointment of Intikhab as coach for a variety of reasons but it was the decision of the board Chairman to bring him in.

 

"I have had experience of playing under Intikhab so I should know," Sohail said.
