The Pakistan Cricket Board has appointed Grant Bradburn as fielding coach of Pakistan Cricket Team for a period of three years. The former New Zealand all-rounder will join the team in the UAE for the Asia Cup.
After his appointment, Bradburn expressed his delight: “It is a great honour to be joining Pakistan Cricket Team and their high-quality coaching staff. I have seen the progress that has been made under Mickey Arthur and the opportunity to work with a leading full member team on the rise in world cricket, is a real privilege.”
He further stated: “Against Scotland in June, we saw the impressive changes that have been instilled, noticeably with the physical stature and fielding abilities of Pakistan’s players. I look forward to adding my experience to the players and staff, while being an integral part of the exciting and dominant team, Team Pakistan is becoming.”
Bradburn has replaced Steve Rixon, whose contract expired in June 2018. He was also in the running for the New Zealand coaching job and had been in charge of Scotland since mid-2014.
