Foreign coach to replace Misbah after South Africa series: Sources


Islamabad: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to remove Misbah-ul-Haq and bring in a foreign coach after the home series against South Africa, sources told ARY News. 

The cricket board is not happy with Misbah’s performance under whom Pakistan just won three home Tests during more than a year period.

“PCB has decided to remove Misbah. Gary Kristen and Grant Flower are among the foreign coaches who are up for the vacant place,” a reliable source told ARY News’ correspondent.

It must be noted here that Misbah had already been removed from chief selector and batting coach’s posts. The head coach received immense backlash after Pakistan badly lost two-matches Test series against New Zealand. Since Misbah took charge in 2019, Pakistan has only won home Tests against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The green shirts lost the home T20I series against Sri Lanka immediately after he took charge.
