Peter Moores turns down Pakistan coaching offer


Former England coach Peter Moores has turned down the offer to coach Pakistan Cricket Team due to his commitment with Nottinghamshire as a consultant and also due to his family. Moores was approached by the PCB but he declined the offer before a final offer was made.

“I was hugely flattered to be approached,” Moores told ESPNcricinfo. “And I was very tempted by such a prestigious role with an exciting team.

“But having thought about it deeply, I don’t think it is the right time for me or my family. I have committed myself to a consultancy role with Nottinghamshire and I am enjoying spending time with my kids as they grow up.”

Peter Moores coached the English team twice but he was not able to muster the same sort of success like the way he did in county championships and his rift with Kevin Pietersen made things rather difficult for the coach to stay in the job and lead them to the road of success.

The PCB have been on the lookout for a new head coach after Waqar Younis resigned due to the team’s dismal show in the Asia Cup and World T20. Along with Moores, former Pakistan fast bowler Aqib Javed is also in the running for the post of head coach. The PCB chairman had earlier stated that the new coach of the Pakistan Cricket Team will be announced in the next couple of days.
