Former England coach Peter Moores has rejected an offer to become coach of Pakistan cricket team.
The previous Pakistan coach and former Pakistan cricketer Waqar Younis stepped down from the Pakistan cricket coach in the last month after Pakistan team’s poor performances in the WT20 2016 in India.
Then PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) approached the 53-years old Peter Moores for head coach of the national team. But Moores turned down to take that responsibility due to personal reasons. Moores told ESPNcricinfo, “I was hugely flattered to be approached. And I was very tempted by such a prestigious role with an exciting team.
“But having thought about it deeply, I don’t think it is the right time for me or my family. I have committed myself to a consultancy role with Nottinghamshire and I am enjoying spending time with my kids as they grow up.”
However, recently it was revealed that famous former Pakistan cricketers are currently not interested in becoming a head coach of Pakistan cricket team.
Peter Moores has served twice as England national team coach in before. At first, Moores served during 2007-09 and then between 2014 and 2015. He is one of the successful coaches in the county cricket.
On the other hand, Pakistan team is currently not in a good form in the international cricket. In the recently multi-nation tournaments which were Asia Cup T20 2016 and WT20 2016, Pakistan performed poorly.
After those miserable performances, PCB had approached former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq to become a national chief selector. In reply, Inzamam has agreed to take that responsibility after resigning the coaching job of Afghanistan cricket team. After his resignation from Afghanistan coaching job, immediately PCB appointed Inzamam as a national chief selector.
