Gary Kirsten joins Pakistan squad

Pakistan’s new white-ball head coach Gary Kirsten has joined the national side in the United Kingdom ahead of the upcoming T20I series against England.

South Africa’s Kirsten, welcomed by the team’s senior manager Wahab Riaz, skipper Babar Azam and assistant coach Azhar Mahmood, was presented with the team’s training shirt in Leeds.

The development comes after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) last month announced the appointment of new coaches for the limited-over format and Tests.

While Kirsten will serve as the Men in Green’s head coach in T20I and ODI formats, Australia’s Jason Gillespie will perform his duties as the team’s red-ball coach in Tests.
