The former captain and the head coach of Pakistan Waqar Younis has been appointed as the new bowling coach of the green team.
The former captain was the head coach of the national team in 2010 and Pakistan participated in major ICC events under his coaching.
The performance of the pacers in Waqar’s tenure was impressive and perhaps that’s why the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to give the role of the bowling coach to the veteran pacer.
There were no exquisite competitors of Waqar Younis in this race as the former bowling coach Mohammad Akram also withdrawn his application just before the interview for the role.
Misbah-ul-Haq served under Waqar Younis in 2010
Besides Waqar Younis, Misbah-ul-Haq comes in as the new head coach and also chief selector of the men in green. Both Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis have been given contracts for 3 years.
