Shoaib sets to be coach of high performance team
No one questions his cricketing prowess. Still, he was not getting the opportunity to work on the field with cricket. Shoaib Akhtar also expressed regret over this. Lastly, he focused on online cricket analysis. Shoaib is finally getting a chance to work under the PCB.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is set to appoint the former Pakistan fast bowler as the coach of the High Performance Center. If given the responsibility, Shoaib will play an important role in building the future captains of the Pakistan national team.
Not just Shoaib. Two other former cricketers of the country, Mohammad Yusuf and Abdul Razzaq, are getting the opportunity to work with the high performance team. Although the PCB has not yet made an official announcement on the appointment of the three cricketers, Pakistani media claims that the appointment of Shoaib, Yusuf and Razzaq as coaches at the High Performance Center has been finalized.
Pakistan’s influential media Geo has claimed that Shoaib will be appointed as a pace bowling coach at the High Performance Center. Former captain Yusuf and former all-rounder Razzak will be the head coaches.
Confirming his offer to coach high-performance cricketers, Yusuf told the Pakistani media that he too was interested in taking on the role.
Yusuf and Razzaq have previously coached Pakistan cricket. However, this is the first time that Shoaib is going to get a big responsibility under the PCB. However, he has repeatedly expressed interest in working with national teams on his YouTube show. However, the Pakistan board wants to see Shoaib as a player.
