The Pakistan Cricket Board will name a new head coach before the end of April.

"Even in the case of Kirsten and Gillispie, the board has been in direct negotiations with them and they remain the frontrunners to be named head coaches, (but) they've also been told to apply due process by the deadline," the source said. . He admitted that the PCB would have to make a judgement call and make an announcement by the end of the month as there were several interesting prospects also in the running for the head coach's post."

The Pakistan Cricket Board will name a new head coach before the end of April.

By the end of this month, Pakistan will appoint a new set of coaches for both the red-ball and white-ball national team, a PCB official said on Friday. In addition, the PCB verified that the board had received applications from several well-known coaches in addition to South Africa's Gary Kirsten and Australia's Jason Gillespie before the April 15 deadline. Although they are considering Kirsten and Gillispie, new applications are also in the pipeline, according to a PCB official. "PCB chairman Mohsin Naqvi has made it clear that the long-term appointments of coaches will be through due process and all commitments will be fulfilled by the board," the report said. 

 

When Misbah-ul-Haq was appointed as the chief selector and head coach of the national team in 2019, it was the last time the PCB appointed coaches in accordance with the law. Since then, all appointments have been made on a temporary or consultative basis. Only those applying for the coaching posts will be called for interviews this time, according to a second credible source in the PCB.


 

"Even in the case of Kirsten and Gillispie, the board has been in direct negotiations with them and they remain the frontrunners to be named head coaches, (but) they've also been told to apply due process by the deadline," the source said. . He admitted that the PCB would have to make a judgement call and make an announcement by the end of the month as there were several interesting prospects also in the running for the head coach's post." 

 

The PCB chief does not wish to divulge names at any stage and the names will be revealed when the announcements are made," he said. The PCB has also kept April 20 as the deadline for applicants seeking the assistant coach job. "Even Azhar Mahmood has been appointed as the head coach of the New Zealand series at present," the source said.
