PCB Announce Misbah ul Haq Head Coach, Waqar Younis Bowling Coach of Pakistan Team
Misbahul Haq and Waqar Younis worked together in the past when the Misbah was the captain of Pakistan and Waqas was the head coach. Former captain Misbahul Haq appointed Pakistan’s head coach on a three-year contract on Wednesday, and the great Waqar Younis joined him as the team’s new bowling coach.
Misbah will also assume the position of selector president with head coaches from the six sides of first-class associations such as fellow selectors.
The decision follows PCB’s decision not to renew coach-in-chief Mickey Arthur’s contract after the team has failed to reach the semi-finals of this year’s World Cup.
Misbah, Pakistan’s most successful and serviced test captain, retired from international cricket in 2017 after a distinguished career but played for Peshawar Zalmi in this year’s Twenty20 tournament of the Pakistan Super League.
