Karachi: Former Test batsman and head coach Mohsin Hasan Khan is set to return in an important role in Pakistan cricket either as chief selector or national team manager after the ongoing World Cup.
Mohsin, who was head coach and also the chief selector in 2012, recently stepped down as head of the PCB’s Cricket Committee. But a reliable source said Mohsin is being considered for an important responsibility after the World Cup.
“Mohsin is being considered for the job of chief selector or manager of the Pakistan team,” the source said.
Mohsin, 64, was chief selector in 2010 and 2011 before the PCB made him the interim head coach of the national team. Under him, Pakistan won Test series against Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and England.
But after Zaka Ashraf took over as PCB Chairman, Mohsin was replaced for a foreign coach, Dave Whatmore despite the fact that Pakistan whitewashed England in the Test series in early 2012 in the UAE.
The PCB has announced that after the World Cup its Cricket Committee would hold an inquiry into the team’s and support staff’s performances. — PTI...
