Karachi: Dec 4, 2013

 

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has sacked the local trainers and doctors attached with the national team and appointed Englishman Dale Naylor as the new physiotherapist and trainer of the Pakistan team for the next four months.

 

The move comes ahead of the “home” series against Sri Lanka in the United Arab Emirates.

 

“Naylor is a qualified physiotherapist, trainer and bio-mechanics expert and will remain associated with the team until after the World T20 Cup in Bangladesh,” the Board said in an announcement.

 

The Board also announced the rest of the team management for the SL series which begins from December 11.

 

The board has retained former captain Moin Khan as manager while Shahid Aslam returns as assistant coach.

 

Australian head coach, Dav Whatmore and fielding coach, Julian Fountain will also be with the team. The board has also announced two security officials with the team.
