After the 2023 World Cup, there were many changes in the Pakistan cricket team and board, which included the resignation of the team’s former bowling coach Morne Markle. Now one such player has been appointed bowling coach by the Pakistan team and has been accused of cheating. In fact, Pakistan has appointed former spinner Saeed Ajmal as the spin bowling coach of the men’s team. In addition, Umar Gul has been appointed as the fast bowling coach.
The main reason for the end of Saeed Ajmal’s career was his controversial action. Apart from this, Ajmal is considered to be the nemesis of former India legend Sachin Tendulkar’s fans because he dismissed Sachin in the last ODI in the Asia Cup. Ajmal was often seen making contradictory statements about Sachin Tendulkar. Ajmal was the number one bowler in ODIs.
Ajmal and Umar Gul talk about becoming their bowling coaches and will be from December 14, 2023 to January 7, 2024 for the Test series against Australia and then from January 12 to 21, 2024 for the home T20 series against New Zealand work. Saiz Ajmal will be working with the Pakistan team as a bowling coach for the first time. At the same time, Umar Gul was already working as the fast bowling coach for the men’s team. In addition, Umar Gul played the role of bowling coach for Afghanistan in the 2022 T20 World Cup.
Additionally, Umar Gul served as a bowling coach for Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League. Saij Ajmal played the role of spin bowling coach for Ismailabad United in the PSL.
We tell you that both Saeed Ajmal and Umar Gul have played cricket for Pakistan in all three formats. Saij Ajmal played for Pakistan between 2008 and 2016 while Umar Gul represented Pakistan cricket between 2003 and 2016.
