PCB bid for Shane Watson as Pakistan Coach is in trouble

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) bid for former Australian all-rounder Shane Watson as Pakistan’s Coach faces trouble due to high salary demand. Shane will probably not take the role of coaching the Pakistan national side.

According to media reports, Shane has wanted a large salary package. Hence, there is a good likelihood that PCB would not be able to convince him. Recently, Shane has been coaching Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) ninth season.

Shane Watson requested a large payment of millions of Pakistani rupees to take on the coaching responsibilities. His behavior hints that he is unlikely to accept the part because he does not want to be away from his family for an extended time.

However, PCB is urging Shane to take on the Coach post owing to a lack of other possibilities. But the finalization of this contract with Shane seems impossible. Hence, a bid from PCB for Shane Watson is in trouble following Shane’s demand for a high salary.

Mike Hesson and Daren Sammy are among the candidates for the coaching position of the Pakistan national men’s cricket team. Mike and Daren are the head coaches for Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi, respectively.

According to media sources, PCB has also held discussions with Mike Hesson for the coach of the Pakistani team. But he has not yet responded positively and has asked for time to consider.

The Mohsin Naqvi-led PCB is looking to hire a quality coaching staff for the cricket team. However, selecting well-known coaches will be difficult because the majority operate in global leagues.

The PCB is considering appointing local coaches and overseas experts to fill the gap in time for the next home T20I series against New Zealand. According to sources, Pakistan and New Zealand’s five-match T20I series would likely happen in the second week of April.
