Failure in T20 World Cup forces Pak to seek full time batting coach
Islamabad: Recent failures at the Twenty20 World Cup with the bat have forced the Pakistan Cricket Board to advertise for a full-time batting coach on its website.
The role of batting coach is currently being handled by the head coach, Dav Whatmore, along with the coaching staff, including Julien Fountain (fielding) and Mohammad Akram (bowling).
In an advertisement posted on its website, the PCB has set November 4 as the deadline for interested candidates to send their resumes to its game development department in Lahore.
Pakistan batsmen came up short against Sri Lanka in the semi-finals of the World Twenty20 while chasing 140 runs for victory.
Pakistan’s batting line-up also failed against archrivals India in the Super Eights when they were bowled out for 128.
