Pakistan fielding coach, Steve Rixon has decided to quit after the two T20 internationals against Scotland next week.

According to sources, Rixon had not been been enjoying his job due to extensive travelling of the Pakistan team and also may have signed an agreement with one of the franchises of IPL.

A few months back, Rixon decided not to renew his contract ahead of the 2019 World Cup. Rixon’s contract also expires in June 2018.

In the meantime PCB is in talks with another Australia, Darren Berry, to take up the job.

In the last few years, Pakistan’s fielding has made considerable improvement under Rixon, particularly in the white-ball formats. Fielding has been a major part of Pakistan’s increased focus on improving the level of players’ fitness over the last three years.
