KARACHI, (Reuters) – The Pakistan Cricket Board has ruled out appointing a foreign coach for the national team.
Former test captains Intikhab Alam and Wasim Akram, who are on the four-member committee formed to evaluate and recommend the new coaching team, said none of the shortlisted candidates were foreigners.
“We received a total of 25 applications and after evaluation we have shortlisted some candidates and none are foreigners,” Alam told a news conference in Lahore yesterday.
The PCB is due to appoint a new head coach, batting coach and fielding coach for the national side today.
Australian Dav Whatmore did not extend his two-year contract this month and fielding coach Julian Fountain also left.
Former captains Waqar Younis and Moin Khan are among the favourites to get the top coaching job.
