Former Australian cricketer, Dean Jones is likely to be the chief coach of the Pakistan cricket team, sources says that. The Pakistan cricket board has almost made its mind appoint Dean Jones as chief coach. Not only that, former test opener Mohsin khan may take the charge as team manager and Iqbal Qasim as chief selector. “The board has also reached a consensus on appointing former Test opener Mohsin Khan as team manager and former spinner Iqbal Qasim as chief selector,” a source said.

The PCB has invited interested candidates to apply for the position by April 25 after which a committee comprising Wasim Akram and Ramiz Raja will help the board select the best man. But the source said that Akram and Ramiz had already indicated to the board that Jones would be an ideal choice for the coaching position.

Dean Jones was also the chief coach of the Islamabad United team that won the inaugural Pakistan Super League in Dubai in February. He worked with the Islamabad franchise alongside Akram.

The changes are due to be made after the dismal performance of the team in the Asia Cup and World T-20, which have led to the resignations of Shahid Afridi as captain and Waqar Younis as coach while the board also dissolved the national selection committee.
