Yousuf wants to replace Inzamam as Afghanistan coach

KARACHI: Former Pakistan captain Mohammad Yousuf has applied for the role of head coach of Afghanistan’s cricket team. Another former Pakistani player Atiq-uz-Zaman is also in the run for the top coaching role in Afghanistan. An official of Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) on Monday confirmed that both the former Pakistani players have applied for the role of head coach of Afghanistan cricket team. “Mohammad Yousuf has contacted us through his agent,” confirmed Afghanistan Cricket Board CEO Shafiq Stanikzai. Stanikzai said the ACB has got application from different candidates and a final decision would be made after May 27. “We will gather applications till May 27 from all the people interested in the role of Afghanistan’s coaching, after that we’ll shortlist the candidates for further discussions in second phase,” he added. Mohammad Yousuf represented Pakistan in 90 Tests and 288 ODIs, scoring 7,530 and 9,720 runs respectively, from 1998 to 2010. Atiq-uz-Zaman, who recently coached Punjab’s outfit in Pakistan Cup One Day tournament, is a qualified coach and unlike Yousuf has a coaching experience too. Afghanistan’s head coach post has been vacant since former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq resigned from the position to assume the charge as chief selector of Pakistan’s national team.
