Matthew Hayden Named Pakistan’s Team Mentor For T20 World Cup


Islamabad: The legendary Australia batter Mathew Hyden has been named as Pakistan’s team mentor for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

Former attacking left-handed batter will be having on this potion for the second time. Previously, he also guided Pakistan in the 2021 edition.

The Pakistan Cricket Board announced the decision following Hayden’s involvement with the team in last year’s tournament in which Pakistan reached the semi-final stage.

Hayden reflected on his reappointment and is confident of Pakistan’s chances following their recent impressive performances in the ongoing Asia Cup in which they have qualified for the final.

“I am with the Pakistan team as their mentor for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia and can’t wait to join the culture again and feel the spirit of One Nation One Passion,” Hayden said.

“I have seen how Pakistan have been performing in the ACC T20 Asia Cup and Sunday’s win over India was brilliant.

“I think this Pakistan side has got what it takes to excel in Australia and the conditions will really suit them, both from a batting and bowling perspective. This team has all of its bases covered and I am sure it will light up the World Cup as it did in the UAE last year.

Hayden will join the Pakistan team in Brisbane on 15 October, the day they arrive from Christchurch after completing the New Zealand T20I tri-series.

Pakistan are scheduled to play two warm-up games – against England and Afghanistan – before their tournament opener against India on 23 October at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
