Former kicker Mushtaq Ahmed finished his tenure as a bowling coach at the National Cricket Academy of Pakistan to take on a consulting role in the West Indies. He is expected to become an assistant coach and has a contract that will force him to complete 150 days in a year.
It would begin with the tour of India, but could not be linked with the team due to visa failures. – Pakistani citizens have found it difficult to obtain work visas for India due to tense political ties. Their first job will be the next tour of the West Indies in Bangladesh, where they are scheduled to play two Tests, three ODI and three T20I.
Mushtaq's contract with the NCA was renewed for one year in April, after weeks of uncertainty. At that time, he was also looking at offers from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and the West Indies, but decided to stay behind to get in the fight and become Pakistan's bowling coach. However, he signed a one-month contract as a spinning consultant with Cricket West Indies before joining the NCA again.
Having previously worked with England, Mushtaq was Pakistan's bowling coach for 18 months and was replaced by Azhar Mahmood last year. Since then, it has been an integral part of the NCA established in Lahore.
