Islamabad, Feb 7: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf has said the team needs a qualified head coach to win the World Cup.
Although he praised Mohsin Khan’s as a coach, Ashraf said: “No doubt the team has achieved tremendous success under Mohsin. But we need a qualified coach. Our target is the World Cup for which we want to bring a qualified head coach.”
The PCB has reportedly interviewed Dav Whatmore for the position and he looks the most likely to get the board’s nod.
Former fast-bowler Shoaib Akhtar, however, has demanded that Mohsin should be appointed as the permanent coach.
“Mohsin has gelled the team well. I don’t see any reason to remove him and the PCB should make his appointment permanent,” Akhtar said. (ANI)
