The 42-year-old has been offered the role of working in the Karachi High Performance Center, on a permanent basis, while also being called up to support Head Coach Misbahul Haq on foreign tours as a batting consultant whenever needed.

Players and support staff were happy with his inclusion. However, the legendary cricketer was not called upon during the ongoing limited-overs series against Zimbabwe.

According to sources, a squad of 35 players will be announced for the tour of New Zealand which would include players from the national men’s side and the Pakistan Shaheen team. Khan will likely be a part of the massive contingent that will depart for the tour of New Zealand.
