Pakistan batting coach yet to be finalized, says PCB chief
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Zaka Ashraf has said that a new batting coach for the national team is yet to be finalized and is not sure if the board could take a decision regarding that before the India tour.
"We are in process of selecting the most suitable batting coach for national team and the committee, formed by PCB for choosing an expert, is working on it. It is not sure we will be able to make a final decision in this regard before our team's tour to India," The Nation quoted Ashraf, as saying.
Ashraf also said that the Indian Higher Commissioner has sought two-week time for announcing visa policy for Pakistani fans who will be going to India for the Pak-India cricket series.
"We are in touch with the Indian High Commission and nothing has been finalised yet and all the news appearing in media that Pakistani spectators desirous to get visas must be sponsored by Indians is totally wrong. As soon as we receive visa policy from the Indian High Commission, we will make it public," he said.
Pakistan is set to meet their archrivals in five one-day internationals and two Twenty20s in December and January, their first full series since 2007.
