At last, Former Pakistan Paceman Muhammad Akram has beaten fellow Former Pakistan Paceman Shoaib Akhtar in a Cricket Rivalry, as Muhamamd Akram has been named Pakistan's Bowling Coach for a probationary period of one year. He will join the squad in the United Arab Emirates for the Series against Australia, announced PCB.
Pakistan Cricket Board set up a Three-man Committee to find a suitable candidate and the committee has nominated Muhammad Akram as Pakistan's Bowling Coach.
"After a lengthy deliberation we have decided to appoint Mohammad Akram as Pakistan Bowling Coach," Intikhab Alam said. "Stuart Barnes of England was also shortlisted but unfortunately Barnes was not available immediately and we found Akram more suitable for the role."
Earlier, Shoaib Akhtar threw his hat into the ring to become Pakistan’s Bowling Coach and said "I am ready to be the bowling coach for Pakistan. If the PCB contacts me then I will offer my services".
Pakistan was without a bowling coach since the former fast bowler Aaqib Javed resigned to be UAE's Head Coach after the Series against England last year.
