Former Zimbabwe cricketer and Multan Sultans head coach Andy Flower has turned down Pakistan cricket Board (PCB) request to coach the national cricket team.
According to a report by Cricket Pakistan, the former set up led by Ehsan Mani were looking for options to replace Misbah ul Haq. The cricket board approached Flower but he turned down the offer.
Reportedly, the former Zimbabwe cricketer refusal is due to his busy schedule. He is serving as the head coach of Pakistan Super League champions Multan Sultans.
He also leads Caribbean Premier League’s side Saint Lucia Kings, T10’s Delhi Bulls, the Hundred’s Trent Rockets. Andy Flower works as an assistant coach of the Indian Premier League side Punjab Kings.
The former cricketer wants to completely stay focused on coaching franchise teams in different leagues.
Following Ehsan Mani’s resignation as the boss of PCB, it remains to be seen whether the new chairman PCB wants to continue with Misbah ul Haq or not.
According to sources, Misbah enjoys a good relationship with Ramiz Raja which is why he is expected to continue his role with the cricket team. Mani wanted to sack him due to the poor performance of the team in T20I series against England.
Misbah ul Haq was appointed both the chief selector and head coach in September 2019. Later, he resigned from the role of the chief selector and Muhammad Wasim replaced him.
