PCB finalises coaches for Pakistan men’s team – SUCH TV


The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to appoint South Africa’s Gary Kirsten and Australia’s Jason Gillespie as the coaches for the men’s national side.

According to media reports, the board has picked Kirsten as the white-ball coach while Gillespie has been selected as the red-ball coach for the Green Shirts.

An official announcement in this regard will be made by the cricket board after the completion of formalities as the PCB has advertised the posts on its website and sought applications till April 15.

The decision came ahead of the upcoming T20I series against New Zealand which is set to begin from April 18.

The next major assignment of the Pakistan cricket team is the T20 World Cup which will be held in the United States and West Indies in June.

The said posts were left vacant after Mickey Arthur, Grant Bradburn and Andrew Puttick were transferred to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Lahore after a change in their portfolios in November 2023 following a change in PCB setup.

The trio left their respective positions in January this year.

In April 2023, Arthur was named Director of the Pakistan men’s cricket team while Bradburn was roped in as head coach of the Pakistan national men’s side earlier last year. Meanwhile, former South Africa cricketer Puttick worked as a batting coach since April 2023.

Meanwhile, the PCB has also announced a position for the assistant head coach. The advertisement said that candidates can apply for the post till April 20.

According to details, the assistant coach should have minimum level II coaching accreditation and three years of experience with international team, franchise or domestic team.
