Pakistan cricket team may get a new head coach and new T20 captain after few days. Sources say that the fact-finding committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board has recommended that head coach Waqar Younis be sacked and the board also wants to appoint a new captain of the national T20 team.
Pakistan’s former Test opener, Mohsin Khan is likely to replace Waqar Younis who has served as the chief coach and chief selector of the national team. A well-informed source in the board said that Mohsin has met with chairman Shaharyar Khan this week and expressed his desire to work as chief coach of the national team after Waqar’s exit.
Mohsin was chief selector some years ago and was then appointed as interim coach. Under him, Pakistan defeated Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and England in Test series. There are other candidates in line to get top positions including former Test captain Moin Khan and former Test pacer Aaqib Jave, the source added.
The source said the committee would also recommend that wicket-keeper Sarfaraz Ahmed be appointed as the new national T20 captain.
The source said that the fact-finding committee had nearly finalised its report after going through the reports of manager Intikhab Alam and Waqar and also talking to national T20 captain Shahid Afridi. The committee formed after the Asia Cup debacle last month was also given the task of looking into the reasons for the poor performances in the World T20.
