Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Zaka Ashraf has said that a new batting coach for the national team is yet to be finalized and is not sure if the board could take a decision regarding that before the India tour.
Pakistan Cricket Board`s (PCB) former CEO Arif Ali Khan Abbasi has welcomed an Indian court decision to overturn the life ban on former Indian skipper Azharuddin for alleged match fixing, and said that the decision had proved that cricketers could not be punished for wrong doing just on circumstantial evidence.
The Pakistan Cricket Board`s (PCB) committee will shortlist candidates for the batting coach position this week, according to an official. The PCB had advertised for the vacancy last month, setting November 4 as the deadline for prospective candidates to send in applications, reports The Express Tribune.
Shamed former Pakistan batsman Salim Malik, who was banned by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in 2000 after a judicial inquiry found him guilty of offering bribes to Australian players to lose, has revealed he has applied for the job of national batting coach.
Former captain Salim Malik wants the Pakistan Cricket Board and International Cricket Council to officially remove the life ban on him that was imposed in 2000 for his alleged involvement in match fixing.
