Pakistan’s tour of Australia and New Zealand will be led by Muhammad Hafeez as head coach.

Muhammad Hafeez will lead Pakistan’s coaching team while they are in Australia and New Zealand. In a reorganization that followed Babar Azam’s resignation as Pakistan captain, Hafeez was also named Pakistan team director on Wednesday, replacing Mickey Arthur, who had held the role up until this point.

The former Pakistani all-rounder will play both head coach and team director for the PCB during three Test matches in Australia and five Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) in New Zealand in December and January.

Hafeez, 43, who last played for Pakistan two years ago and has no prior coaching experience, is making a big advancement. However, it is kno that the current administration considers the head coach and team director to be redundant in their separate roles.

Team Director

Indeed, until earlier this year, Pakistan lacked a team director. Arthur and former PCB chairman Najam Sethi came to an agreement whereby Arthur would travel with the team for specific series and tournaments. Sethi had been open about his pursuit of Arthur.

The choice brings an end to a very turbulent day for Pakistani cricket. After being informe that he would no longer be serving as captain for the two white-ball formats, Babar resigned from all three formats. Babar’s decision to step down made it possible for Shan Masood to be name Test captain and Shaheen Afridi to be name T20I captain, even though the PCB management committee probably lacks the authority to make that decision.

They will not accompany the team to Australia, and although Hafeez’s appointment as team director was first announced, neither the head coach nor the chief selector were mention. The addition of Hafeez as coach does add to the overall picture, but Wahab Riaz is still the front-runner for the chief selector role.

Pakistan travels to Australia on November 30 and, from December 6 to 9, plays a warm-up match at the Manuka Oval against the Prime Minister’s XI. On December 14, the first Test gets underway in Perth. After playing three Tests, the team plays five Twenty20 Internationals in New Zealand.
