Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday announced the appointments of former New Zealand cricketer Grant Bradburn as Head of High Performance Coaching and former Pakistan spinner Saqlain Mushtaq as Head of International Player Development as part of the prestigious High Performance Centres restructuring.
In addition to the two former Test cricketers, LUMS graduate Asser Malik, who has a wide-ranging experience with various multi-national companies, has been confirmed as High Performance Operations Manager.
"The restructuring is aimed at providing a clear pathway to the young and aspiring player support personnel and players within the game," the PCB statement said. "The three appointments have been made following a robust recruitment process that included presentations by the candidates, followed by interviews conducted by a high-powered panel that also included members of the PCB Cricket Committee."
Bradburn, who played seven Tests and 11 ODIs for the Kiwis between 1990 and 2001, is presently the fielding coach of the Pakistan men's national team, a role he took in September 2018 following a successful coaching stint with the Scotland men's national cricket team. IANS
