Pakistan bowling coach, Azhar Mahmood has thanked Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for providing him with a great opportunity to serve as the bowling coach of his country. Pakistan Cricket Committee recently decided not to extend contracts of their coaching staff ending Mahmood’s tenure with the national side.
Mahmood became the bowling coach of Pakistan on November 2016 and oversaw various highs and lows during his stint. Under Mahmood, Pakistan managed to win historic Champions Trophy but missed out on securing a semi-final spot in the World Cup that concluded last month.
Pakistan bowlers enjoyed a good relationship with the departing bowling coach and were often seen boasting camaraderie with him off the field. The committee, which includes former captains Wasim Akram and Misbah-ul-Haq, was unanimous in calling for new coaches.
