Shane Watson Likely To Take Over As Pakistan’s Head Coach


However, the Pakistan Cricket Board has not issued an official announcement regarding Shane Watson’s prospective appointment as the men’s cricket team’s head coach.

Shane Watson, a former Australian cricketer, is one of the leading candidates for the role of head coach in the Pakistan Cricket Team. Watson is currently the head coach of the Quetta Gladiators franchise in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL), and a Cricket Pakistan report suggests that Watson and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) are discussing the possibility of the 42-year-old taking over as head coach.

According to the article, once an agreement is reached, Watson would meet with PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi. If both parties agree, the meeting with the PCB official will be used to finalize both short-term and long-term arrangements. An official announcement of Watson’s appointment could potentially be issued soon. It is worth noting that, while Wastson has never led an international team before, he has previously held various coaching positions in franchise cricket.

If Watson is appointed, his first coaching assignment would be a series against New Zealand. The New Zealand-Pakistan series schedule has not yet been set. Pakistan will host New Zealand for this series, which is expected to include five T20Is in April. According to current information, the BlackCaps could go to Pakistan on April 14, with the series opening scheduled for April 18.

Shane Watson went on to represent Australia in 59 Tests, 190 One-Day Internationals, and 58 Twenty20 Internationals. He is largely recognized as one of the best all-rounders, having scored 3731, 5757, and 1462 runs in Tests, ODIs, and T20Is, respectively, while also taking 75, 168, and 48 wickets in those formats. Watson won the ODI World Cup twice for Australia, and he also helped them win the ICC Champions Trophy in 2006 and 2009. Watson most recently served as an assistant coach for the Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
