LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has reportedly ‘in principle’ decided to appoint former Sri Lankan coach Stuart Law as new head coach of the national side, media reports said late Tuesday.
According to local media reports, the governing body has agreed on former Australian Test player’s name after Peter Moores turned down PCB’s offer.
Stuart Grant Law has played one test and 54 One-Day Internationals for Australia. He also captained Queensland to five Sheffield Shield titles and two one day trophies, making him the most successful captain in Australian domestic cricket. Law is also Queensland’s all-time leading run scorer in first class cricket.
The former Queensland coach and captain has recently signed a contract with Cricket Australia (CA) as a batting consultant for the upcoming Sri Lanka tour, scheduled for July-September. Pakistan team is also scheduled to tour England during the same time-period.
The post is vacant since Waqar Younis stepped down last month after the team’s woeful campaigns both in the Asia Cup and the World T20.
