PCB hunting for new Pak coach after ending Moin Khan's two-month reign
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is reportedly advertising for a new coach of the national team after ending Moin Khan's two-month stay in the position following the team's disastrous World Twenty20 exit.
The PCB management committee unanimously decided to start a new coach search after
Pakistan, under the mentorship of Khan, failed to reach the semi-finals of the ICC World T20 for the first time in five editions.
According to Sport24, the PCB advertisement invited applications for the roles of head coach, batting coach, fielding coach, spin-bowling consultant, physiotherapist, and strength and conditioning coach and gave a deadline of May 5.
The report mentioned that Khan, a former wicketkeeper-batsman, was appointed for two months in place of Australian Dav Whatmore who held the post for two years.
Meanwhile, the report said that fielding coach Shoaib Mohammad and batting consultant Zaheer Abbas also failed to get an extension, adding that it is believed the race for head coach will again be between Khan and Waqar Younis.
