Pakistan former captain, Misbah-ul-Haq has emerged as the front runner for the position of the Pakistan head coach and has also formally applied for the vacant position. To cater to Misbah’s application, PCB is set to relax one of the major requirements advertised for the head coach position.

The PCB, in its advertisement for the position, had stated that it was seeking an individual that has "at least three years of working experience in a similar cricketing role in an elite environment at the international level". However, Misbah does not possess any coaching experience at the professional level.
Due to this move, PCB has provided an impression that the advertisement for the job was a mere eyewash to carry out a formality and it has pretty much already chosen Misbah as the replacement of Mickey Arthur.
