LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has served a notice to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) asking for explanation over Misbah-ul-Haq’s triple role of being the team’s head coach, chief selector and batting coach.

According to cricketpakistan.com.pk, the single bench comprising Justice Mohammad Ameer Bhatti issued the notice, after a petition was filed by Advocate Ali Zahid Bukhari.

The petitioner’s counsel argued that Misbah had no prior experience and, hence, is not an ideal choice to hold three designations at the same time.

The 45-year-old, who retired from international cricket in May 2017, was confirmed as Pakistan men’s national team head coach in all three formats on a three-year contract, on September 4, 2019. He was also named as the Chairman of Selectors with head coaches of the six first-class Cricket Association sides as his fellow selectors.
