West Indies will be touring Pakistan for 15 days to play T20 and one-day international series. “Saqlain will continue to be the interim head coach of the national cricket team for the limited overs series against West Indies,” a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official said.

The PCB, however, has yet to decide on bowling and batting coaches for the forthcoming series. “In a few days we are to make a decision on that. One thing is certain that Saqlain will continue to be the head coach of the team for the series against West Indies,” the official said.

As per sources, PCB is expected to make a decision on the permanent Pakistan head coach during Pakistan Super League (PSL) engagements, most probably in February.

It is pertinent to note that Australia is scheduled to tour Pakistan in March 2022. Before that, the PCB is expected to announce a new head coach for the long term. It merits mention that West Indies will be touring Pakistan for 15 days to play T20 and one-day international series.
