PCB have appointed Saqlain Mushtaq and Abdul Razzaq as interim coaches for Pakistan Cricket team after unexpected resign by both Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis.

In the PCB press release, Younis is quoted as saying, “After Misbah shared his decision and future plans with me, it was an easy decision for me to step down as we had taken the role together, worked as a couple and are now stepping down together.”

The pair each had one year remaining on their contracts after their appointment in September 2019.

“As the New Zealand team will arrive on September 11 for the three ODI and five T20I series and the Pakistan team will assemble in Islamabad on September 8, the PCB has appointed Saqlain Mushtaq and Abdul Razzaq as interim coaches for the series, with the team management for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 to be appointed in due course,” the statement said.
