PCB invites application for coach
KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has started the hunt for head coach, fielding coach and batting consultant inviting application and has set an 18-day deadline, ARY News has learnt.
PCB has also invited names for the roles of spin-bowling consultant, sports physiotherapist, and strength and conditioning coach.
PCB didn’t extended the contracts of head coach Moin Khan, fielding coach Shoaib Mohammad and batting consultant Zaheer Abbas, and has invited applications for their positions.
This is the second time since the start of 2014 that PCB has sought new coaching staff.
In February, the current coaching team was appointed on the recommendations of Wasim Akram, Intikhab Alam and Javed Miandad. However, the board seemed unsatisfied with their performance in the Asia Cup and the World T20.
Sources revealed that Waqar, who was Pakistan's coach between March 2010 and September 2011, is considered to be a strong candidate, and is reportedly keen to take up the job. Moin is likely to be given another role within the PCB, which may be the head of the selection committee.
