Umar Gul named Afghanistan’s bowling coach
Former Pakistan pacer, Umar Gul, has been designated as Afghanistan’s bowling coach. He is set to take over the role from their forthcoming tour of Zimbabwe where they are scheduled to play three ODIs and as many T20Is.
Gul was recently employed by the Afghanistan Cricket Board as the bowling consultant for the recently held training and preparation camp in UAE in April. The Pakistani veteran worked with the fast bowlers in our national lineup and considering his effectiveness in the camp as well as based on the need, it was decided to offer him a permanent contract as the national team's bowling coach," said an official from the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB).
Gul was accompanied by former teammate Younis Khan, who had been roped in as batting consultant for the camp. Gul has prior coaching experience with Quetta in the Pakistan T20 League. Earlier this year, Afghanistan had also named Graham Thorpe as their new head coach replacing the outgoing Lance Klusner.
