PCB appoints Mark Coles to coach Women team on Trail
Mark Coles is appointed on a trial basis.

After a satisfactory revival of Cricket in the country, the Pakistan Cricket Board is trying to up bring the women team. Lately, Mark Coles was appointed as the head coach of Pakistan Women Team. Coles will begin his stint with the upcoming tournament of the team against New Zealand. However, as confirmed by PCB, the appointment is on trial basis and the head coach will be working only as a volunteer in the upcoming series. Per Najam Sethi, Chairman of PCB, said the board tried "so many" coaches from their own country "without better results."

The women team of Pakistan is through a low form. In the World Cup campaign this year, the team could not win a single match. It was under coach Sabhi Azhar. The coach however, pushed the responsibility of the poor showdown towards the captain as well as the senior players of the team. As the team reeled down to the bottom of the tournament's chart, PCB is now serious to revamp it. The board has gone through a report that assessed the reasons of the poor form. Following the revamp, the management will undergo a reshuffle. The board might also consider options to replace Sana Mir, the present captain of the team.

Per Sethi, the board wants to set up a "professional management team" that can deliver results. He mentioned the need of professional input in to the format to transform it like the men's. Coles, meanwhile, has been the coach of several domestic teams in New Zealand and Australia. His experience ranges from being the manager for Waikato Valley, coach of Western Australia and Wellington women teams to being with Vanuatu as an ICC affiliate. The forthcoming campaign of the Pakistan women team comprises of three ODIs and four T20Is in UAE. It is a part of ICC Women Championship.
