Sacked coach Geoff Lawson says only a foreign coach can successfully manage the Pakistan cricket team.

The former Australian international says from what he's seen only a foreign coach can deal with players who are involved in internal and external politics.

The Pakistan Cricket Board terminated Lawson's two-year contract nine months early last week, saying it was not satisfied with his performance.
