Former Indian Cricket Captain Ajay Jadeja is fondly remembered among Indian fans for his blistering knock against Pakistan in the quarter finals of the 1996 ODI World Cup but in a recent live session the former Indian batter jokingly expressed his interest in Coaching Pakistan's National Team. Jadeja brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the table. His understanding of the game, coupled with his ability to connect with players, makes him a compelling candidate for the coaching position.

In a recent interview with Sports Tak, Jadeja jokingly responded to the question of coaching Pakistan with a simple "I am ready." This lighthearted remark, however, masked a deeper sentiment – a genuine interest in guiding the Pakistani team towards success.

He draws parallels between Pakistan and Afghanistan, the latter of which he mentored during the 2023 World Cup. Afghanistan's spirited performance, including a stunning victory over Pakistan, showcased their potential to upset the established order. Jadeja's coaching philosophy is rooted in open communication and a direct approach, encouraging players to express their opinions freely. This approach resonates with the Pakistani cricketing culture, which values honesty and transparency.

Pakistan Cricket undergoes a leadership reshuffle following World Cup disappointment

In the wake of a disappointing performance at the 2023 World Cup, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced a series of changes to the national team's leadership structure. In a bid to revitalise their Test fortunes, Pakistan has appointed Shan Masood as the new captain of the Test side.

Masood, a technically gifted left-handed batsman, will lead the team in their upcoming tour of Australia. In the T20I format, the PCB has turned to fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi for leadership. Afridi, one of the most exciting young talents in world cricket, will take charge of the T20I side.

Mohammad Hafeez named team director and head coach to oversee the overall direction of the team, the PCB has appointed former all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez as team director and head coach for the upcoming series in Australia and New Zealand. Hafeez, a highly respected figure in Pakistani cricket, brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role.
