Matthew Hayden, Vernon Philander Joins Supporting Staff For World T20 2021

Newly appointed PCB chairman Ramiz Raja appointed Australian great Matthew Hayden and South African pace bowler Vernon Philander to join supporting staff for the World T20 2021 to be played from 23rd October in United Arab Emirates.

“It might be very beneficial to have an Australian occupying the dressing room. And Pakistan, of course, can win the World Cup, they just need to improve their performances an extra 10%. Vernon Philander I know very well, and he understands bowling, and has a great record against Australia.”

“Matthew Hayden is Australian and has experience of winning World Cups and was a great player himself,” Ramiz said on Monday (September 13).

Pakistan Cricket Board announced Saqlain Mushtaq and Abdul Razzaq as interim coaches for the home series including 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is starting from 17th September. The ODIs will be played at Rawplindi Stadium while T20Is will be played at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.

Misbah and Waqar Younis decided to skip from their jobs after citing bio-bubble reasons after Mohammad Wasim announced T20 squad.

Under the captaincy of Babar Azam, Pakistan could not play according to expectations and whitewashed by an inexperienced England squad 0-3. Following, Pakistan lost the T20I series to England by 1-2.

“The Australian can bring some aggression into the team. He has experience of World Cups and was a world-class player himself. Having an Australian in the dressing room will be of great benefit for us. I know him(Philander) well, he understands the nuances of bowling and he has a great record in Australia.” PCB’s newly elected chairman Ramiz Raja said.

“The national side has the potential to win the World Cup, and we need to back the side selected for the global event. We need to fine-tune our plans. Pakistan cricket’s DNA consists of fearlessness, and we need to define a proper model and provide clarity to achieve desired results.” he added
