Tough target set for Geoff Lawson

Karachi: Nothing less than a major Test series win or one-day title and a place among the top three in ICC rankings during new coach Geoff Lawson’s two-year contract would be acceptable to the Pakistan Cricket Board.

PCB Chairman Naseem Ashraf said Lawson would be given certain targets to meet during his two-year tenure.

“We know that improvement will come gradually but at the same time we can’t ignore the present. We would like to see the team win at least one major series or one-day title under Lawson,” he told reporters in Islamabad.

“If he can get our team into the top three ICC rankings we would like to see his contract extended,” Ashraf said.

Lawson, who replaced the late Bob Woolmer, will join the team around August 20 and his first assignment will be the Twenty20 World Cup in South Africa in September.

“We had clearly told him during the interview that he would have to bring us at least one trophy or clinch us one major series during his stint with us,” Ashraf said. The major international one-day tournaments in 2008 are Champions Trophy and Asia Cup. — PTI
