Former Pakistan fast-bowler Waqar Younis has emerged as the most likely candidate to secure the position of the team’s bowling coach.

The Burewala Express became the strongest candidate for the position after former pacer Mohammad Akram withdrew his application.

On the other hand, former Australia cricketer Dean Jones gave his interview for the position of head coach via video link. He has already informed the PCB’s cricketing committee about his plans for the team.

The interviews for the role of head coach and bowling coach will be carried out on Thursday after which the five-member panel will send its recommendations to PCB Chairman Mr Ehsan Mani, a press release by the cricket board read.

The interviews for the batting and strength and conditioning coaches will be conducted after the position of head coach is filled.
