Pakistan coaching changes have not yet been made in a tangible manner, according to Zaka Ashraf


In response to rumours that the coaching and management personnel for Pakistan will change under the current PCB leadership, PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf stated that “no concrete decisions” had been made in this regard.

According to Ashraf in an interview with Cricket Pakistan, the choice will be based on the advice of a recently established cricket committee led by former captain and national coach Misbah-ul-Haq.

Whether the coaches are domestic or international, Ashraf stated, “I don’t think it matters.” “As of right moment, no firm decision has been made regarding changing coaches. A committee led by Misbah-ul-Haq has been established by me. All cricket-related issues will be examined by that committee, which will also consult any cricketers who want to serve on it. I’ll participate in the conversation after they present their final analysis, and together, we’ll decide what is best for Pakistan cricket.

Since the recent trip of Sri Lanka, where Pakistan won the Test series 2-0, there hasn’t been any formal word from the PCB on the future of the men’s coaches for Pakistan. ESPNcricinfo is aware of lengthy internal deliberations over the past week on the future of the coaches and team manager, with some reports indicating an abrupt change was unavoidable.

In April, Grant Bradburn, who had previously served as Pakistan’s fielding coach, was named team director. The following month, Grant Bradburn was named head coach. Rehan-ul-Haq was named squad manager of the national team after serving as general manager of Islamabad United for all eight seasons of the Pakistan Super League. During the six-month interim period that Najam Sethi served as PCB chairman, each of the appointments was made.

Although the committee hasn’t met in person yet, Misbah has previously made it obvious that he disagrees with certain coaching arrangements. He replaced Arthur as Pakistan’s head coach in 2019 and referred to Sethi’s pursuit of Arthur as “a slap on Pakistan cricket.”

Before co-hosting the Asia Cup and returning to Sri Lanka to play a three-match ODI series against Afghanistan, the simmering anger comes ahead of a hectic week for the Pakistani team. Then they are scheduled to fly to India to attend the World Cup. Ashraf reiterated in this interview what the PCB had previously stated: “Travel to India for the World Cup will be contingent on government approval and mutual agreement on appropriate venues.”
