Responding to the World Cup disappointment in India, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) named former all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez as the team director on Wednesday.
In an official statement on X, the PCB disclosed the restructuring of the coaching staff’s portfolio, emphasizing that “all coaches will continue to work in the National Cricket Academy while PCB will announce the new coaching staff for the upcoming series in Australia and New Zealand in due course.”
Recently elected as a member of the technical committee, Mohammad Hafeez brings a wealth of experience with a cricketing career that includes 55 Tests, 218 ODIs, and 119 T20s.
As a vital part of the team that secured the Champions Trophy, the 43-year-old Hafeez assumes the role of team director. The PCB also announced leadership changes, appointing Shaheen Shah Afridi as the captain of the T20I side and naming Shan Masood, particularly excelling in Test cricket, as the captain for the red-ball format.
