Misbah-Ul-Haq, Waqar Younus and Muhammad Wasim are in line to get Pakistan’s coaching jobs.
According to sources, Misbah is all but certain to take over as Pakistan head coach. Waqar Younus has appeared as the front runner for Pakistan’s bowling coach job. Sources have reported that Muhammad Akram withdrew his application for the post of bowling coach when Waqar Younus applied for the post. Moreover, Muhammad Wasim seems to be ahead of Faisal Iqbal in the race for Pakistan’s batting coach. Muhammad Wasim played for Pakistan in the late nineties and early 2000’s. He gives analysis on cricket on different TV channels and is also running a coaching academy.
The three names seem good to take Pakistan cricket forward. Waqar Younus has worked as Pakistan bowling coach previously and was very successful. Wasim has good knowledge about the art of batting and will be beneficial. Misbah, though, will have to lead a team of coaches where both coaches are senior than him.
