KARACHI: A coach plays key role in victory of any team but it appears as Intikhab Alam had no hand in Pakistanís historic win in the World Twenty20 Cup.
Intikhab Alam who as coach brought two World Cups for Pakistan, received the prizes of only Rs 78,125 while each and every player of the victorious team was showered with huge prizes. Even the players who appeared for the first time in international cricket have become millionaires after winning the tournament but this is strange to note that coach Intikhab Alam and assistant coach Aaqib Javed could not get upto Rs 100,000.
Intikhab was the coach of the national team which had won the 1992 World Cup while Aaqib Javed was a playing member of the team and played as fast bowler in that event.
The biggest beneficiary in the World T20 Cup is captain Younis Khan. The amount of prizes he received has crossed the figures of Rs7.5 million.
