Umar Gul Responds To Speculations Over Becoming Pakistan Bowling Coach


Former fast bowler Umar Gul has expressed excitement about the potential opportunity to become the bowling coach for Team Pakistan. Umar Gul has stated that it would be an honor for him to serve as the bowling coach of the Pakistan national cricket team.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is all set to part ways with the coaching staff following the team’s failure to qualify for the semi-finals of the World Cup. Bowling coach Morne Morkel has already resigned from his post after being appointed on a six-month contract.

It Will Be An Honour For Me – Umar Gul

While speaking at a local event, Umar Gul responded to speculations about becoming the next Pakistan bowling coach, stating that the Pakistan Cricket Board has not officially approached him for the role.

“Pakistan Cricket Board hasn’t contacted me yet for the bowling coach role, it will be an honour for me if I am appointed as the bowling coach of the Pakistan team,” Umar Gul said as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.

Morne Morkel, who joined the Pakistan team on a six-month contract in June, resigned from his role as the bowling coach. His resignation came after the Pakistani bowlers faced challenges in the World Cup and were expensive with their bowling throughout the event.

Umar Gul Previously Worked Pakistan Team Bowling Coach

Umar Gul is the preferred choice for the role of bowling coach for the upcoming three-match Test series against Australia. The board will announce his replacement in due course before the Test series scheduled from December 14, 2023, to January 7, 2024, in Australia.

Umar Gul previously took on the role of bowling coach for the Afghanistan team in 2022. Additionally, the former pacer served as the interim bowling coach for the Pakistan team during the three-match T20I series against Afghanistan in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The 41-year-old featured in 47 Tests, 130 ODIs, and 60 T20Is. He bagged impressive bowling figures with 163 wickets in Tests, 179 wickets in ODIs, and 85 wickets in T20Is. The former right-arm fast bowler played a key role in Pakistan’s triumph in the 2009 T20 World Cup.
