(MENAFN- Gulf Times) • Raja names Hayden and Philander AS coaches for T20 World Cup
Pakistan's Cricket Board (PCB) elected former captain Ramiz Raja as its new chairman yesterday, and hours later announced former Australian opener Matthew Hayden would be a batting coaching consultant for next month's Twenty20 World Cup.
Raja, 59, a former national opener himself, was elected unopposed to replace Ehsan Mani whose three-year tenure ended last month, a Pakistan Cricket Board statement said.
He played 57 Tests and 198 one-day internationals for Pakistan between 1984 and 1997.
In his first press conference, Raja announced that Hayden and South African former international Vernon Philander had respectively been appointed batting and bowling coaching consultants ahead of the Twenty20 World Cup in Dubai and Oman.
“I think Hayden will bring an Australian touch of aggression in the Pakistan team and I personally know Philander who can also bring a positive change,” said Raja.
Their appointments come after coaches Misbah
