Karachi: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday appointed former Bangladesh trainer Grant Luden as trainer and fielding coach of its national team.

The Pakistan management under PCB chairman Najam Sethi has undergone a major revamp after the side failed to qualify for the semi-finals of the World T20 in Bangladesh this year.
The South African-born Luden`s appointment comes after the hiring of head coach Waqar Younis, spin consultant Mushtaq Ahmed and batting coach Grant Flower.

"Grant Luden has signed up with PCB as training/fielding coach," Sethi said. According to the Express Tribune, the PCB had decided to hire a fielding coach who could also double up as a trainer, which made Luden the favourite candidate.
