Azhar Mahmood Emerges as Strong Contender for Pakistan Men's National Team Assistant Coach Role

Interested candidates have until April 20 to submit their applications.

Former Pakistan all-rounder Azhar Mahmood is poised to step into the role of assistant coach for the Pakistan men’s national cricket team. He's currently serving as the bowling coach for Islamabad United.

Azhar brings a wealth of experience to the table, having previously held the same position for the national side. His expertise and insight into the game make him a strong contender for the assistant coach role.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) recently announced an advertisement for the assistant coach position, emphasizing the need for candidates with a minimum Level 2 coaching accreditation and at least three years of experience working with international teams, franchises, or domestic sides. 

In addition to Mahmood's potential appointment, former South African batter Gary Kirsten and ex-Australian pacer Jason Gillespie have been finalized for the roles of white-ball and red-ball head coaches, respectively, for the national men’s side. The final decision regarding these appointments is pending completion of all formalities, with the PCB seeking applications until April 15.
