Mohsin Khan will continue as interim coach of Pakistan for the series against Bangladesh, which starts later this month. The PCB said the decision to retain Mohsin was taken as a full-time coach had not yet been identified.
Mohsin was initially put in charge of the team in early October, ahead of the ongoing series against Sri Lanka, after Waqar Younis stepped down from the post citing health reasons. Pakistan won the Test series 1-0 in the UAE, and started the limited-overs leg of the contest on Friday.
The PCB had formed a committee in late August to find Waqar' successor and though it arrived at a shortlist of five candidates a month later, no full-time coach has yet been appointed. The committee was constituted by the previous PCB chairman Ijaz Butt but the process was delayed as Butt completed his three-year tenure and was replaced by Zaka Ashraf last month.
Apart from the head coach, the PCB has also advertised for three other coaching roles - national batting, bowling and fielding coach. The closing date for receiving applications was set as November 18.
Pakistan play two Tests, three ODIs and a Twenty20 against Bangladesh in a series that begins on November 29.
