Misbah-ul-Haq named Pakistan head coach

Former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq has been named head coach of the national side.
Even the 45-year-old, who retired from international cricket will coach Pakistan in three formats.
Waqar Younis, who contributes to the group as bowling coach will supports him.
Misbah replaces former head coach Mickey Arthur, who left Pakistan in August in the conclusion of his contract after they failed to reach the semi-finals of their Cricket World Cup.
The selection board clarified Misbah as the”unanimous choice” for the vacant role and have verified that he will also take over as the chairman of selectors for the national team.
“It is very humbling for me to join a selection of some of the very best to have coached the Pakistan national sides in the past,” Misbah said.
“It is an honor and more than this, a large obligation as we breathe and live cricket.
“I know expectations are very high, but I am completely ready and up for the task otherwise I wouldn’t have pitched my name from the hat one of the most difficult and coveted roles in Pakistan cricket.”
PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan added:”We’re thrilled to have a person of Misbah-ul-Haq’s direction, skill and stature taking on the responsibility of our national team.
“At precisely exactly the exact identical time, I’d like to thank all the local and overseas candidates who provided their solutions, but the panel unanimously put their weight Misbah since it believed that he was a perfect match for its double assignments due to his comprehension, wisdom and demands of Pakistan cricket across all of the 3 formats of this match.”
