The Pakistan Cricket Board is all ready to name famous cricketer Mohammad Yousuf as permanent batting coach for the Green Shirts, well-placed sources informed on Thursday.
The decision was made following Yousuf's resignation from the post of batsman coach for the National High-Performance Centre (NHPC), Lahore, the sources said.
The post of the new batsman head coach of the NHPC will be announced soon. The position has not yet been verified through the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
The governing body for national cricket had recruited former Australian player Matthew Hayden as a batting consultant for the coming T20 World Cup in Australia in the coming months, however, Hayden will no longer collaborate with The Green Shirts.
According to sources, He was appointed his Pakistan team's temporary coach for batting upon the request of the head coach Saqlain Mohtaq during an upcoming home game against Australia.
Yousuf is currently part of The Pakistan Team for Tests located in Sri Lanka, where they have beaten Sri Lanka's hosts during the opening game of the two-match Test series in Galle.
