Misbah-ul-Haq applies for Pakistan head coach role, steps down from PCB Cricket Committee
Former captain Misbah-ul-Haq has stepped down from the cricket committee and applied for the Pakistan’s head coach job. The 45-year-old met Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) International Cricket Director Zakir Khan on Monday and informed him about his decision and then formally applied for the position of head coach which has been vacant since Mickey Arthur’s contract expired.
“It has been interesting to see my name being mentioned as a future head coach of the Pakistan cricket team, but the fact is I only made the decision today, I am applying for the head coach’s role fully aware that the competition will be tough. I envisage there will be a few more very competent and highly qualified people applying for one of the most challenging jobs in the game.” said former captain.
“In saying so, I have to admit it is everyone’s dream to coach Pakistan cricket team, which has tremendous potential to be a force to be reckoned with across all formats.” Misbah further added.
