Aqib Javed a strong candidate for head coach


Lahore: Former fast bowler Aqib Javed becomes the strongest candidate to replace Waqar as head coach. The suggestion to let Waqar complete his agreed term also comes under discussion.

In the coming couple of days it would be clear as to what type of changes would occur in the team management and the national selection committee whereas the captaincy issue is quite clear that a new player would lead Pakistan team in T20s.

Sources disclosed that Aqib Javed has become a strong candidate for head coach and has all the chances to get this responsibility. Services of some foreign coaching staff would also be acquired.


As there is no immediate series in sight, its been proposed that Waqar Younus be allowed to complete his tenure which ends in June. Since Pakistan’s recent performance in test format remained satisfactory, its been suggested to continue the same set up till the test series against England and let the new coaching staff take responsibility of short format series.

Sources say that PCB chairman liked this proposal but other higher officials didn’t favor it.
