The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has retained Waqar Younis as the head coach of Pakistan till the England tour in the summer of 2016. The retention of Younis comes in as no surprise as Pakistan have found tremendous success in the longest format of the game under the coaching of Younis. Along with Younis, skipper Misbah Ul Haq too has been successfully persuaded to delay his retirement, so that he can lead Pakistan in England.

PCB chief Shahryar Khan confirmed that Waqar would stay on as the head coach of Pakistan and Misbah would continue leading the side. “There is no reason to change Waqar or the coaching staff and we will only review their performances and contracts after the England tour,” Shahryar said. “The England tour is an important one for us especially since we will be going there for the first time after the infamous 2010 spot-fixing scandal.”

Misbah’s presence in the Pakistani camp will just be a source of strength for the Pakistanis as he has led them exceptionally throughout his career. With an all important test series against England, there was no candidate better than Misbah to lead Pakistan. “I had a chat with Misbah and he indicated he would not retire now. But he is yet to agree formally,” Khan said.

“We want Misbah to continue as captain because he is a dependable, stable and sensible captain and he can handle pressure and maintain discipline in the team. We know the tour to England will not be easy because of the spot-fixing scandal, and with Amir back in the side, we want Misbah to continue as captain,” Khan concluded.
