Gary Kirsten, a former South African opener and India’s World Cup-winning coach. Is expected to be the frontrunner in the battle to become Pakistan cricket’s next head coach. Along with him, Simon Katich and Peter Moores are among the other candidates in the contest. But according to the Indian Express, Kirsten is the frontrunner.
According to sources, the current Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Ramiz Raja. Is eager to hire a foreign coach for the national team. As a result, the board will have a difficult time persuading the chosen candidate. To accept the onerous post and forego a chance to lead a T20 franchise.
