Following Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) move of handling former captain Misbah-ul-Haq a dual position, a chunk responded strongly. However, few made a valid point of burdening him with both coaching and selections jobs while highlighting the fact that the Mianwali born is a novice to this trade.
To counter this reservation and to lighten the burden of Misbah, the governing body of Pakistan cricket has invited applications for the position of national selection committee’s coordinator.
PCB invites applications for selection coordinator
PCB believes that having a person assisting the 45-year old would help demolish a potential disconnect between the chief selector and the provincial head coaches.
For this role, the appointed person will be responsible to monitor first-class matches and spot the talented players for the national pool.
A level II coaching course is the requirement for this appointment. Moreover, former cricketers are meant to get some preference. It remains to be seen who joins Misbah in his quest to improve Pakistan team in all the three formats of the game.
