Azhar Mahmood Likely to be Asst Coach of Pakistan Cricket Team for All Formats

Former Pakistan all-rounder Azhar Mahmood is likely to be named assistant coach of the national team across all formats.

On Monday, the Pakistan Cricket Board appointed Mahmood as the interim head coach for the home series against New Zealand beginning April 18.

The PCB is yet to finalize long-term contracts with Australian Jason Gillespie and South African Gary Kirsten. While Gillespie has been picked to be the head coach for the red-ball format, Kirsten will be the head coach for the white-ball formats.

As per reports, Mahmood will be the assistant coach to both these foreign coaches in all three formats.

Mahmood has in the past served as the bowling coach of the Pakistan team. Besides Mahmood, the PCB has also named Muhammad Yousuf, who is also a national selector, as the batting coach for the New Zealand series. Saeed Ajmal will be spin bowling coach for the five-match series against New Zealand.
