This is the second time since the start of 2014 that PCB has sought new coaching staff. In February, the current coaching team was appointed on the recommendations of Wasim Akram, Intikhab Alam and Javed Miandad. However, the board seemed unsatisfied with their performance in the Asia Cup and the World T20, and has set an 18-day deadline for applicants. It has also invited names for the roles of spin-bowling consultant, sports physiotherapist, and strength and conditioning coach.
Since the exit of Dav Whatmore and Julien Fountain, Pakistan has failed to find a stable coaching panel. The uncertainty in the PCB's leadership has also contributed to this. Najam Sethi, who was reinstated as interim PCB chief in February, had chosen to back Moin as head coach over Waqar Younis, who was also a contender.
ESPNcricinfo also understands that the PCB has a preference for former Pakistan players as head coach, and foreign applicants will be considered for the support staff, including the fielding coach.
Waqar, who was Pakistan's coach between March 2010 and September 2011, is considered to be a strong candidate, and is reportedly keen to take up the job. Moin is likely to be given another role within the PCB, which may be the head of the selection committee. Moin had recently met the PCB management committee, where he presented a list of 30 players for the forthcoming summer camp.
