Misbah Likely to Appointed Pakistani Team’s Head Coach, Selector

LAHORE: Pakistan’s most successful captain Misbah-ul-Haq has been appeared to play a dual role as a chief selector-cum-head coach under the new model being introduced by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB.

In this connection, development was also seen on Thursday when the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) appointed Misbah as the camp-commandant for the pre-season training camp being held at the NCA in Lahore from Aug 22 to Sept 7.

It is learnt that Misbah himself selected the players for the training camp and now he will also coach them so it may also be a test for him to prove his credentials for the dual role that he is likely to be assigned now.

Misbah, as captain of the Pakistan team, earned a good name for himself and it was under his leadership that Pakistan earned top spot in Test cricket in 2016. It must be mentioned here that Misbah took over the reins of the Pakistan team in a very difficult period when the infamous spot-fixing scandal at Lord’s in 2010 involving then skipper Salman Butt and pacers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir had completely tarnished the Pakistan team’s reputation.
