Pakistan appoints Misbah head coach, chief selector

Lahore, Wednesday: Pakistan Wednesday appointed former captain Misbah-ul-Haq as head coach and chief selector in a bid to lift the national team’s performance.

The cricket-mad nation failed to reach the semi-finals of the 2019 World Cup in July, prompting the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) not to renew head coach Mickey Arthur’s tenure. Bowling coach Azhar Mahmood and batting coach Grant Flower were also shown the door. The PCB said Misbah will be head coach for three years.

“Former captain Misbah is confirmed as Pakistan men’s national team head coach in all three formats on a three-year contract,” said a statement. “In line with the PCB’s commitment to ensure transparency, accountability and role clarity at all levels, Misbah was also named as the chairman of selectors.” - AFP
