    The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has named former Pakistan captains Misbahul Haq and Waqar Younis as the head coach and bowling coach of the Men in Green. Misbah has also been given the added responsibility of being the chief selector of the national side.

    Earlier, the PCB had decided not to renew the contracts of Head Coach Mickey Arthur, Bowling Coach Azhar Mahmood, Batting Coach Grant Flower and Trainer Grant Luden.

    Misbah was confirmed as Pakistan men’s national team head coach in all three formats on a three-year contract.

    In line with the PCB’s commitment to ensure transparency, accountability and role clarity at all levels, Misbah was also named as the Chairman of Selectors with head coaches of the six first-class Cricket Association sides as his fellow selectors.

    Misbah was a unanimous choice of a five-member panel that comprised Intikhab Alam (former captain and the longest serving Pakistan team manager and coach), Bazid Khan (former international cricketer and one of the most respected commentators), Asad Ali Khan (member, Board of Governors), Wasim Khan (Chief Executive, PCB) and Zakir Khan (Director – International Cricket, PCB) following a robust recruitment process.

    On the recommendation of Misbah, the PCB also named two-time former head coach and ICC Cricket Hall of Famer Waqar Younis as bowling coach of the national side on a three-year contract.

    Both the national team appointments were approved by the PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani.

    The first assignment of Misbah-Waqar combination will be the upcoming three ODI and three T20I home series against Sri Lanka, which will be played from September 27 to October 9. The duo’s first series in the World Test Championship will be in Australia when Pakistan will play in Brisbane (November 21-25), followed by a day/night Test in Adelaide (November 29-December 3).

    Misbah and Waqar have previously worked as a pair from May 2014 to April 2016 with the former as captain and the latter as head coach.

    The 45-year-old Misbah, who retired from international cricket in May 2017, said: “It is very humbling for me to join a select group of some of the very best to have coached the Pakistan national sides in the past. It is an honour and more than that, a massive responsibility as we live and breathe cricket.”

    He added: “I know expectations are high, but I am absolutely ready and up for the task otherwise I would not have thrown my name in the hat for one of the most challenging and coveted roles in Pakistan cricket.”

    He also stressed on the need for embracing modern-day cricket requirements.

    “We have some of the most talented and exciting cricketers, and I will like to help them train and prepare in such a way that they can play intelligently, smartly and fearlessly. I am aware this will require a change in the dressing room culture but if we have to compete consistently at the highest level, we have to embrace these modern-day requirements,” he said.

    “We need to understand this is a performance-oriented world and only those Pakistan players have thrived in the past who have taken the pride in donning the star and crest on their chests by delivering every time they have stepped on to the field. That’s the way I have played my cricket all through my career and this will not change in my new role,” he added.

    Misbah was also excited about working alongside Waqar in this new role.

    “I am excited to once again have someone as experienced and knowledgeable as Waqar Younis in my corner as a bowling coach. We have exciting young fast-bowlers in our ranks and there is no better person than Waqar to transform them into modern day stars,” he said. “Both Waqar and I had a candid and frank discussion and we discussed and agreed on a number of things, including roles and responsibilities as well as how to take things forward."

    Akhtar takes a dig at Misbah’s appointment

    Pakistan’s former pacer Shoaib Akhtar took a dig at the appointment of ex-Pakistan captain Misbahul Haq as the new head coach and chief selector of the Pakistan cricket team on Twitter.

    The fast-bowler poked fun at the appointment in a tweet that suggested the former captain could be on his way to becoming the new Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman as well.

    “Congratulations to Misbahul Haq for the new 'dual' role of Head Coach as well as Chief Selector for Pakistan Cricket Team. I am surprised he is not appointed the Chairman PCB as well along with it,” Akhtar tweeted.

    The fast-bowler however clarified that it was a joke and wished the new head coach and chief selector good luck.

    “I am just kidding. I really hope he does wonders like before,” he added.

    The tweet comes in the backdrop of the appointment of Misbahul Haq as the head coach and chief selector of the Pakistan cricket team by the PCB on Wednesday.

    Misbah is set to replace former head coach Mickey Arthur, who was removed after the suggestions of the cricket committee. It must be noted that Misbah was a part of the same committee at that time.

    The former captain was confirmed as Pakistan men’s national team head coach in all three formats on a three-year contract.

    The 45-year-old was a unanimous choice of a five-member panel that comprised Intikhab Alam (former captain and the longest serving Pakistan team manager and coach), Bazid Khan (former international cricketer and one of the most respected commentators), Asad Ali Khan (member, Board of Governors), Wasim Khan (Chief Executive, PCB) and Zakir Khan (Director – International Cricket, PCB) following a robust recruitment process.

    Wasn't Misbah was on the same committee which fired Mickey Arthur and now he got now one, but two roles.

    Also, back in 2015-2016 didnt Waqar made a point in this report that Moin Khan was appointment as the Chief Selector and Manager of the team, which created a huge culture of insecurity, fear, buttering where the players went out of their way to score brownie points with him out of fear of losing their spots in the team.

    So now PCB has given Misbah two roles, wouldnt it create any conflict? Also, keeping that fact in mind that Misbah has NO international coaching experience.

    A selector's job would require continuous travel all over Pakistan and keep looking for the talented and promising kids kids/players - instead of - watching a few videos and diving into the domestic scoring cards to pick the the players.

    If Misbah were to do his selector job alone, he wouldn't have time to wash his butt after taking a poop.

    How is he going to perform the duties of a head coach as well?

    Seriously, this is absolutely ridiculous !!

    Misbah is better than Shoaib Akhtar atleast. Poor guy gets so much hate. I was also a massive critic then one day I realized what I was doing was wrong. Misbah has helped us win many games and helped Pakistan recover from a low point in our cricket.

    Should not criticise someone for no reason.

    Misbah set to earn big after landing dual role

    The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) looks set to offer the new head coach and chief selector of Pakistan cricket team, former captain Misbahul Haq, the same salary package as his predecessor Mickey Arthur.

    The PCB has not officially announced the salary package; however, Chief Executive officer (CEO) of the PCB has said that Misbah would receive the same amount as Arthur. It should be noted that Arthur received $20,000 per month. The monthly salary of Misbah could therefore be around PKR 32,00,000 per month.

    Misbah had previously rejected the offer of coaching the Under-19 side. The PCB rejected Younis Khan’s request of PKR 15,00,000 for the same role and offered PKR 11,00,000 instead. This resulted in a deadlock between Younis and the PCB.

    On the other hand, Misbah looks set to earn around PKR 40,000,000 per year with his current contract. It should be noted that the current CEO and Director Media of the PCB were also hired for record salaries. The new PCB management seems to be failing in their quest to save money.

    I have always said he is a pure politician. You cant manage 2 roles, So if there is a domestic tournament going and Pak is traveling overseas, How will Misbah ul F&@&k manage to select the best future players. secondly its pure conflict of interest. I dont mind him being coach but making him CS is a bummer. We will go further down, Players and captain will be selected by Misbah. get ready for a catastrophe within a year

    why is everyone more interested in why Misbah is making that much money ?

    first of all, none of your business. I won't judge or ask you how much you are making.

    second of all, he's handling multiple big positions. If anything he should get more from PCB.

    when you hire dam specialist engineer you pay the engineer 10x more what average experienced engineer is making

    reason: the specialist is way more experienced and have earned the paycheck for working on the field for more than anyone out there

    Because he doesn't deserve it? He's not even qualified for the selector job, let alone the head coach.

    I’ve seen some crazy decisions by the PCB, but this and the money aspect is probably the most retarded thing ever!

    For all the accusations of favouritism, nepotism of previous boards and the promise that this would be better is a farce.

    One man wants to screw the PCB over by lining his pockets, and they are bending over

    1. He was a selector, not a head coach.
    2. He became a selector after a lot of time between his retirement and becoming a selector, clearly had nothing to do with player politics or conflict of interest.
    3. He wasn't in a committee which ousted the previous selector to become the new selector.
    4. He was arguably the finest Pakistani batsmen and built a formidable team during his era.

    Clearly, misbah is not any of the above.

    Okay but you said above Misbah is not qualified for selector role...so it’s ok Inzi did not have qualifications? Shows Misbah haters bias.

    I don’t agree he should have been given both roles but it’s going to happen. No point in fans crying over spilt milk. Wait and see how he does...then judge.

    Misbah would've qualified as a selector after three years of staying in retirement, at least.

    Becoming a selector directly after retiring is completely unheard of in any professional field.

    Sorry but that’s just laughable and double standards. First time I am hearing that to become a selector, one must be a retired cricketer of three yrs or more. Really? Fact is some you guys are just angry because it is Misbah. Nobody would bat a eyelid if it was anyone else in he’s place..

    Inzi had prior experience of coaching. You really think comparing Inzi and Misbah is fair? Misbah just passed the coaching course a few months ago then he joined a committee which ousted the head coach then he resigned from the committee and applied for coach and became a coach.

    Can you give me an example close to this happening any where else in the world?
