PCB started thinking about Gary Kirsten and Justin Langer for coaching

PCB started thinking about Gary Kirsten and Justin Langer for coaching. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is seriously considering hiring South Africa’s Gary Kirsten or Australia‘s Justin Langer as head coach.

Gary Kirsten has coached the Indian team while Langer has coached the Australian team in the past.

PCB is keen to secure a long-term contract for the team’s new coach, with the board scrambling to fill the Pakistan head coach vacancy as soon as possible.

After the disappointing performance of the Pakistani team in the ODI World Cup last year, coach Bradburn was sacked, since then the team has not had a head coach.

Former all-rounder Muhammad Hafeez served as both the team director and head coach during Pakistan’s tours of Australia and New Zealand, but Hafeez resigned from the post last month, prompting the PCB to look for a suitable replacement. I am busy.

Initially, the PCB had discussed with former Australian all-rounder Shane Watson for the head coach, but talks could not be done with him.

In this regard, Mohsin Naqvi said that some rumors had already started circulating in the media, which had no truth.

Apart from Kirsten and Langer, PCB is also reportedly considering Mike Hessen, Matthew Hayden, Eoin Morgan and Phil Simmons.

While former PCB chief Zaka Ashraf advocated local coaches, Naqvi has preferred foreign coaches. The Pakistan Cricket Board is facing challenges in convincing foreign coaches.
