The Pakistan Cricket Board has hired Greg Chappell, the former Australian captain, as a consultant to their national team and their cricket academy. According to sources in the PCB, Chappell has telephonically given his consent to accepting the offer, but the contract remains to be signed.

As per the terms of the proposed contract, Chappell will have to set aside 30 days per year to work with the PCB. He will be required to deal with players from the national team, and perhaps even the national cricket academy as required.

When Chappell was contacted at his Sydney residence he preferred to play it safe. "I don't think it's right to comment on this until the contracts are signed, sealed and delivered," said Chappell. Meanwhile, a spokesman for the PCB has said that Daryl Foster, a bowling coach also from Australia, will have a similar contract with the PCB. He is set to take up his first on-site assignment by conducting a 16-day coaching camp from June 24 onwards. The board was also considering using the services of Barry Richards in a similar fashion.

Foster has worked with the Pakistan team before while Chappell has been evolving his own brand of coaching, called Chappellway, over the last few years. He has also been coach of the South Australian team and has conducted various coaching seminars in India and Australia.
