According to insiders, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is debating hiring veteran fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar as the national team’s bowling consultant.
Following Shahid Afridi’s appointment to the PCB executive committee, the cricket board is considering contacting the right-arm bowler for his knowledge of the sport.
According to rumours, Akhtar may soon be assigned a crucial role for the national team.
According to sources, the former top pacer has already been approached and has expressed interest in helping to raise the level of play among the players.
Najam Sethi, the head of the PCB management committee, will soon meet with Akhtar in Lahore. The former pacer is most likely to receive a job offer from PCB during the meeting.
