The 46-year-old stated that he saw no reason why Andy Flower wouldn’t be able to become the head coach of Pakistan in the future
Pakistan’s former all-rounder Azhar Mahmood, while talking to PakPassion.net on Tuesday, threw weight behind Multan Sultans head coach Andy Flower to become head coach of the national men’s side in the future.
The 46-year-old stated that he saw no reason why Andy Flower wouldn’t be able to become the head coach of Pakistan in the future.
“I don’t see any reason why Andy Flower cannot take on the role of Pakistan Head Coach in the future. I have had the honour to work with Andy Flower during T10 and in two editions of PSL and I absolutely love the guy! He has great knowledge of the modern-day game and he is renowned the world over as a coach, but the most important aspect of his style of coaching is the way he pays attention to the views of others,” Mahmood said.
“No opinion which helps the team win is too big or small for him to consider and whilst he will rightfully take the final decision, he will always listen with great care to other members of his staff and the players before doing so. I don’t see any reason why he cannot take on the role of Pakistan Head Coach in the future,” he added.
The former all-rounder also revealed that reason behind the secret signals being sent by the Multan Sultans coaching staff to their players during their tournament matches.
“The number codes we used in PSL were secret signals for the captain and bowlers as to what they can do on the field. Of course, this is not telling the captain what to do but instead it's advice for the skipper based upon our analysis using technology to say which bowler is the best match for which batsman and so on,” he concluded.
