Default Pakistan turn to Trevor

Pakistan turns to Trevor

AFP, Karachi

Pakistan has hired three Australian coaches -- Trevor Chappell, Daryl Foster and Dennis Waight -- to boost its national team and improve the standard of cricket in the country.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said Foster and Chappell will train future hopefuls at regional and national academies while Waight is set to help boost the fitness levels of the national team.

"The trio of Australian professionals are all highly qualified in their areas and are likely to make a major impact in enhancing the competence level of Pakistani cricketers," PCB said.

Pakistan's hiring of former England opener Geoff Boycott in February this year came under heavy criticism because he was paid a hefty 30,000 pounds sterling (46,000 dollars) for a two week training session at the national academy in Lahore.

Pakistan last month beat world champions Australia in a one-day series in Australia but their fielding and fitness levels have nevertheless come under flak.

President General Pervez Musharraf will honour the team for their series win next week, the PCB announced.

Chappell had coached Bangladesh but was sacked after Test cricket's newest entrants lost 10 out of their 11 games since gaining Test status in 2000.

Chappell was regarded one of cricket's best fielding coaches, having coached Sri Lanka's team from 1996 to 2000.

Pakistan's next assignment is a three-way series with South Africa and Sri Lanka at cricket's newest venue of Tangiers, Morocco starting August 12.

Pakistan's two home-ground series against Australia set for October are in doubt due to security fears.

PCB on Sunday announced that both the one-day and Test series would be played at a neutral venue

Sri Lanka, Kenya, Bangladesh, Tangiers, and England have been mooted as likely venues. A final decision will be taken by mid-July, the PCB said.

New Zealand had to cut short its tour of Pakistan in May after a suicide bomb blast outside their hotel in Karachi. Fourteen people, including 11 French naval engineers, were killed in the attack.

Another blast outside the US Consulate here June left 11 people dead.

Interesting. My personal realization is, Trevor sucks as a coach. But may be he is a good "fielding" coach.

Pakistan always sucked at fielding. We will see if Trevor makes a differance.
