Pakistan Cricket Board is still looking for a suitable candidate for the post of head coach. Despite of receiving a number of applications from foreign as well as local candidates, they are still keeping the options open.
According to a PCB official, the board can even contact someone, who they feel suitable for the job even if he has not applied against the job vacancy PCB published.
Monday, the April 25th, was the last date to apply for the position. Now, the panel comprised of Wasim Akram and Ramiz Raja along with the PCB will weigh different options and appoint the best person possible.
South Africa’s Micky Arthur, who has worked with Karachi Kings in the inaugural edition of the Pakistan Super League is one of the favorites to coach Pakistan national team. Other than him, England’s Peter Moores and Pakistani legendary fast bowler, Aaqib Javed are also under the radar of PCB.
A PCB official told, “The PCB reserves the right to hire someone other than the applicants if those who have applied aren’t available instantly, if they don’t meet our requirements or if we aren’t able to agree terms with them.”
The PCB official further said that the board is neither looking for a renown name nor they are looking for past records of candidates, the board is actually searching for a man with a vision that can improve Pakistan cricket’s current situation.
