Pakistan Cricket Board’s officials were quick to congratulate the newly appointed coaches. PCB Managing Director Wasim Khan said that the idea of giving the head coach and chief selector role to Misbah Ul Haq was an innovative one.
The concept of a head coach also being a chief selector is an innovative one and a new introduction to our system. But, while the PCB has further empowered Misbah, it has also put more responsibility on his shoulders: CEO PCB, Wasim Khan
