Karachi: Pakistan men’s team head coach Misbah-ul-Haq is likely to get sacked before the South Africa series, scheduled to start from January 26, ARY News reported.

According to sources, batting coach Younis Khan is the top candidate to replace Misbah as interim head coach for the upcoming series while Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will post advertisements for a foreign head coach after the series against South Africa.
