A head coach will also be appointed alongside the two, Ramiz said in his first press conference as PCB chairman
The two former cricketers come as unexpected appointments, and it was not immediately clear what specific roles the duo would play. Ramiz also said there would be a head coach appointed alongside them, but did not reveal a name yet.
“Matthew Hayden is Australian, and has experience of winning World Cups and was a great player himself,” Ramiz said. “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.”
