However, as expected Pakistan Cricket Board just advertised the the positions of the conventional batting, bowling and fielding coaching. Instead of the head coach position the home board nevertheless has announced the position of a high performance coach while the position of the power-hitting coach has also been announced for the first time.

The High Performance Coach as per report published by GEO Super “will be required to provide integrated and holistic coaching support to the players across all formats and levels, including life and mental preparedness. He will also be responsible for identifying talent and defining objectives for individual players that would facilitate excellence and augmentation in the players’ games, personalities, and leadership, following the PCB’s vision, philosophy, and approach.”
