Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board is planning to give a major responsibility to former national captain and wicketkeeper Moin Khan in the forthcoming ICC Champions Trophy in England.

A reliable source in the PCB confirmed to PTI that two senior officials and former captains Javed Miandad and Intikhab Alam have been assigned the task of talking to Moin about the future assignment planned for him.

"Javed and Intikhab have been in touch with Moin in recent days even though he is in Sri Lanka with Karachi University as coach for the Red Bull championship," the source said.

The source said PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf was keen on engaging Moin with the team in a coaching role or as cricket manager.

"The role of cricket manager is likely to go to Moin as he is aware of the scientific requirements of the game and has also earned the respect of others in his career. Moin fits the bill perfectly," the source said.

He pointed out that Moin, 41, who played 69 Tests and 219 ODIs for Pakistan, had also shown interest in the assignment.

The PCB also announced on Friday that it had signed an agreement with former captain and fast bowling great Wasim Akram to not only work with the national team pacers but also with the young bowlers in domestic cricket.
