Head coach Misbahul Haq will oversee the development and coaching of the batsmen
Pakistan’s batting coach Younis Khan and spin bowling coach Mushtaq Ahmed, for the England tour, are unlikely to be a part of the national team’s coaching staff for the upcoming home series against Zimbabwe. Head coach Misbahul Haq will oversee the development and coaching of the batsmen during the series.
According to sources, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has not signed a contract with Khan for the role of batting coach, yet. Board officials feel that Khan’s presence is especially beneficial in the longer format of the game. His stint proved fruitful for batsmen during the tour of England. The decision to leave Khan out of the coaching staff is due to the absence of Test matches against Zimbabwe. He could be added back for the tour of New Zealand and home series against South Africa, in the future.
The current team management includes head coach Misbahul Haq, team manager Mansoor Rana, bowling coach Waqar Younis, fielding coach Abdul Majeed, physiotherapist Cliff Decan, strength and conditioning coach Yasir Malik, security manager colonel retired Usman, media manager Raza Rashid and masseur Malang Ali.
The three One-Day Internationals, between Pakistan and Zimbabwe, in Rawalpindi are set to be played on October 30, November 1 and 3, while the three Twenty20 Internationals, will be played at Gaddafi Stadium on November 7, 8 and 10.
