    Miandad Leaving????

    Pakistan coach Javed Miandad has hinted he may give up the job after the current Test series against India.

    Miandad, who is in his third spell in charge of the team, says he is fed up with media criticism.

    "I've been very disappointed and upset and upset with some comments in the media and I'm not sure if I want to continue," he said.

    Pakistan lost the one-day series 3-2 and the first Test, but look set to win the second in Lahore.

    India ended the third day's play on 149-5 in their second innings, still needing another 53 runs to make the home side bat again.

    "I'm very happy with how the boys have bounced back in this match.

    "But this performance has been soured by the damaging and unfair criticism in the last two weeks," said Miandad.

    "What hurts most is that there is criticism on the basis of just one or two bad performances."


    Miandad is one of Pakistan's greatest ever batsmen, having scored 8,832 runs in 124 Tests and 7,381 in 233 one-day international appearances, and was a member of the 1992 World Cup-winning side.

    His previous spells as coach ended in 1999 and 2001 and he said he would be willing to step aside again if anyone else could do the job better.

    "I've never asked to be appointed coach of the senior team.

    "The board have always come to me to help out in a crisis," he added.
