PCB hires Matthew Hayden as mentor of Pakistan team for ICC T20 World Cup

KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has rehired Australian batting great Matthew Hayden as team mentor for the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia.
Hayden expressed confidence that Pakistan team, with its set of strong players, will light up the mega event, set to unfold next month.
Hayden had done a stint with the Pakistan team during last year’s World T20 Cup in UAE and saw Pakistan being beaten by Australia in the semi-finals.
The PCB said that Hayden will join the side in Brisbane on October 15, the day Pakistan arrive from Christchurch after competing in the T20I series also involving Bangladesh and hosts New Zealand.
The PCB had also hired South Africa’s Vernon Philander for the last World Cup as bowling consultant.
The PCB said the decision is a continuation of Hayden’s involvement with the national men’s side after he inspired them to the semifinals of the last World Cup.
