PCB to give preference to local batting coach for national team

Karachi, Fri, 02 Nov 2012 ANI

Karachi, Nov. 2 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) coach-hunting committee would prefer to hire a local batting coach for the national team, according to a PCB official.

"The preference will be to hire a former Pakistan cricketer. The committee is yet to review the candidates. It may favour a local candidate but he should have strong batting credentials," The Express Tribune quoted the official, as saying.

"That candidate should also have at least some coaching experience and then the required experience can be overlooked. The target is to find a batting coach before the forthcoming tour of India," he added.

As per the criteria, the applicant must possess a level-3 coaching course certificate besides having 'working experience in a similar cricketing role with elite cricketers' of five years.

The committee, headed by PCB director Intikhab Alam, has been receiving numerous applications from all over the country since it advertised for the vacancy last month.

Former captain Zaheer Abbas and former team manager Col Naushad are the other members of the committee aided by cricketer-turned-commentator Ramiz Raja. The committee is expected to meet soon after the deadline for applications on November 4.

The PCB currently employs two foreigners - Dav Whatmore (head coach) and Julien Fountain (fielding coach) in its coaching panel, while having former Pakistan fast-bowler Mohammad Akram as the bowling coach. This time, however, the committee wants a local coach for batsmen. (ANI)
