Newly appointed bowling coach Shaun Tait is looking forward to helping the Pakistani pacers to perform better under pressure.

The 39-year old has been hired for the Australian series as a bowling coach for Pakistan.

Tait was set to join the Pakistan team from the start of the historic series between Pakistan and Australia but was unable to join the team due to the sad demise of his father.

"I joined the squad late for the Australian series but due to the wonderful dressing room environment faced no difficulty," Tait said during a virtual media conference.

The right-arm pacer received a warm welcome on his arrival and adjusted to the environment without any hindrance.

"I received a warm welcome. Pakistan is full of fast bowling talent. I am excited to work with talented young pacers in Pakistan. I will try to prepare them physically and mentally to perform better under pressure," Tait added.

The Australian rated Shaheen Shah Afridi as "one of the world's most dangerous bowlers" and is looking forward to improving the skill set of the left-arm pacer.

"Shaheen Shah Afridi is one the most dangerous bowlers when he is fit and in action with all his skills. I will try to prepare him physically and mentally for future challenges." Tait stated.

According to Tait, aggressiveness is the beauty of fast bowling, and the right-arm pacer was known as one of the most fierce and aggressive fast bowlers during his career.

"I have played aggressive cricket in my career. I want to see the same passion and aggression in the Pakistani bowlers. "Tait added.

Shaun Tait has been working in the coaching role after his retirement, and the Pakistan cricket team is his most recent project.

"I joined coaching after my retirement with the mindset to stay connected to the game and help other cricketers," Tait stated.

Shaun Tait was happy to be a part of the Pakistan cricket team and was excited to work with the talented young Pakistani pacers.

"It is a proud moment to get a chance to work with the Pakistani bowlers. Karachi Test did not favor the fast bowlers from both teams. Such situation occurs in Test Cricket," Tait concluded.
