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 no full-time coach was yet 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 Younis’ successor and though it arrived at a shortlist of five candidates a month later, no full-time coach has yet been appointed. Apart from the head coach, the PCB has also advertised for three other coaching departments – national batting, bowling and fielding coach. The closing date for receiving the 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.
