Mohammad Hafeez Appointed as Pakistan Head Coach for Australia and New Zealand Tour

Mohammad Hafeez will act as Pakistan’s lead trainer in Australia and New Zealand. Hafeez had likewise been selected as Pakistan group chief – the position Mickey Arthur held as of recently – on Wednesday after a reshuffle followed Babar Azam’s renunciation as Pakistan skipper.

The PCB will blend the jobs of group chief and lead trainer into one, a double job the previous Pakistan allrounder will execute for three Test matches in Australia and five T20Is in New Zealand, in December and January.

It is a huge move forward for Hafeez, 43, who last played for Pakistan a long time back and has no instructing experience up to this point. Be that as it may, it is perceived the ongoing organization sees the two separate jobs for group chief and lead trainer as pointless.

Without a doubt, Pakistan didn’t have a group chief until recently. Previous PCB director Najam Sethi, who had made no confidential of his quest for Arthur, worked out an agreement with him that would see Arthur travel with the group for specific series and competitions while keeping up with oversight when he was unable to accompany the side under the stewardship of Award Bradburn. At the point when both Arthur and Bradburn were on the side, it was felt there was no particular distinction between their particular positions, something that provoked the ongoing PCB organization to get rid of the additional job.

The choice covers what has been a surprisingly turbulent 24 hours in Pakistan cricket. Babar surrendered as skipper from each of the three organizations after he was informed he would be feeling better about his obligations in the two white-ball designs. While that is a choice the PCB the executive’s panel probably comes up short on power to take, Babar picking to leave prepared for Shan Masood’s arrangement as Test chief, and Shaheen Afridi’s as T20I skipper.

Before long, Arthur and Bradburn saw their own jobs essentially decrease, with the PCB saying they would be “reassigned”, minus any additional explanation. They won’t go with the group to Australia, and keeping in mind that it was at first declared that Hafeez would take over as group chief, there was no word on the lead trainer or the central selector. Hafeez’s arrangement as mentor finishes the image further, however, the place of boss selector stays empty, with Wahab Riaz the leader.
