Karachi: Apr 18, 2014


The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has once again advertised for coaching positions in the national team after the short-term contracts given to head coach Moin Khan, batting consultant Zaheer Abbas and fielding coach Shoaib Mohammad were not renewed.


In an advertisement on its website, the board also invited applications for sports physiotherapist, strength and conditioning coach, and spin bowling consultant.


The PCB said it prefers to have a former Test or international player as the head coach and the deadline for entries has been set as May 5.


Australia‘s Dav Whatmore completed his two-year stint as coach in February before the PCB gave short contracts to Moin, Zaheer and Shoaib for the Asia Cup and ICC World T20 2014 in Bangladesh.


Former pacer Mohammad Akram, who was given a two-year contract by former PCB chief Zaka Ashraf, has been retained as the bowling coach.
