<p>The ¡Jang” publication claims that prominent figures including Phil Simmons, Eoin Morgan, Matthew Hayden, Mike Hesson, Langer, and Kirsten had been approached by the PCB.</p>
<p>The T20 World Cup and the Champions Trophy are two ICC competitions that the PCB Chairman, Mohsin Naqvi, said he wants international coaching and support personnel to work with the Pakistani side.</p>
<p>The previous chairman of the PCB, Zaka Ashraf, had chosen to choose former players from inside the country as coaches instead of overseas coaches Mickey Arthur, Grant Bradburn, and Andrew Puttick after the World Cup in India.</p>
<p>By mutual consent, the international coaches were freed from their contracts after three months of pay.</p>
<p>“Others are now very reluctant to accept any offer from the PCB,” a board official said, citing the organization’s dismal history of hiring and firing coaches, both international and local.</p>
