Naveed Akram Cheema is likely to be named the new team manager of Pakistan Men’s National Cricket Team, reported 24NewsHD TV channel Thursday.

According to sources, Cheema will replace Rehanul Haw as Pakistan team manager. Rehan was made team manager on the recommendation of Micky Arthur by the then chairman Rehanul Haq.

Cheema has also previously worked as team manager.

It must be noted that Wednesday (November 15) was a day of changes in the PCB and team as first, Babar Azam stepped down as the captain from all formats after meeting with the chairman of the PCB Management Committee, Zaka Ashraf, after he was only offered to keep the Test captaincy.

Right after his resignation, the PCB named new captains for Test and T20I cricket with Shan Masood and Shaheen Afridi taking the realm of respective formats.

Shan was appointed captain till the end of the ICC World Test Championship 2023-25. Shan’s first assignment as captain will be a three-match Test series against Australia in Australia starting from 14 December.

Meanwhile, left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah will lead Pakistan Men’s Team in the T20I format and his first assignment as captain will be the five-match T20I series in New Zealand from 12 to 21 January.

Not just that, the PCB also sacked the entire coaching staff of the Pakistan men's team including Director Cricket Mickey Arthur. As per the press release, the PCB changed the portfolio of the entire coaching staff including head coach Grant Bradburn and batting coach Andrew Puttick.

Bowling coach Morne Morkel had already resigned from his position earlier this week. Umar Gul is likely to be named his replacement.
