The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has appointed Misbahul Haq as the head coach of the men’s national team while Waqar Younis has been given the responsibility of bowling coach.

According to details, the governing body will issue a press release to formally announce the names of the selected candidates and media talks will be held afterward.

Misbah had earlier stepped down from the PCB Cricket Committee after expressing interest in applying for the role of the national cricket team’s head coach.


A five-member panel – comprising former captain Intikhab Alam, ex-international cricketer Bazid Khan, Board of Governors (BoG) member Asad Ali Khan, PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan and Director International Cricket Zakir Khan – had earlier interviewed the candidates.
