Pakistan Name New Coaches For Men’s Cricket Team

The Pakistan Cricket Board named two coaches for the men’s national team. Jason Gillespie has been appointed for a longer format while Gary Kirsten will take the reigns of One-day international and T20Is.

They have been without any coach since the departure of Micky Arthur and Bradburn. Pakistan drew 5 five-match T20I series against the second-string New Zealand side captained by Michael Bracewell. The first match ended with no result. Pakistan then registered a dominating win by six wickets in the 2nd T20I.

Pakistan suffered humiliating defeats in the 3rd and 4th T20I matches before winning the 5th T20I match by 9 runs to level the series at 2-2. Azhar Mahmood who was appointed as an assistant coach for the New Zealand T20I series will continue its post as full-time across all three formats.

The three coaches will be there for two years following the procedure. PCB chairman Mohsin Naqvi made announcements in a press conference today in Lahore.

“Jason’s coaching career has been marked by success both at the domestic and international levels, with a focus on player development and achieving excellence in team performance. Gary’s coaching career has been marked by his ability to instill a winning mentality, develop young talent, and achieve success at the highest levels of the game, making him one of the most respected and sought-after coaches in cricket,” he  said.


“In this background, I have every confidence that their expertise will guide our players to reach new heights, aligning with their inherent talent and the expectations of our passionate fans. These high-quality appointments also present a remarkable opportunity for our players to glean insights from these seasoned professionals, refining their skills and fortifying their cricketing acumen,” he again stated.

Gary Kirsten And Jason Gillespie’s first series as coaches

Gary Kirsten’s job for the Pakistan team would start against England starting on 22nd May at Leeds. After this, they will go to the West Indies and the USA for the T20 World Cup 2024. Gary Kirsten was the coach of India that won the ICC World Cup 2011 after a gap of 28 years.

Jason Gillespie’s first assignment as Pakistan coach would be the two-match Test series at home in August. These two test matches will be part of the 2023-25 WTC cycle.
