Former Pakistan captain and wicket-keeper Moin Khan has been named as the national side’s new head coach, the Pakistan Cricket Board announced at a press briefing.
Khan was appointed Pakistan’s chief selector in July last year before being asked to tour Zimbabwe with the team as manager. Moin was relieved of his duties earlier this month and replaced by Zakir Khan, a move seen by many as a sign the former gloveman was being considered as the top contender for the coach’s job.
Former Test batsman Shoaib Mohammad has been appointed the fielding coach while Mohammad Akram will remain the bowling coach. Selector Azhar Khan has been elevated to the post of interim chief selector.
