Former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson in running for Pakistan job


Former New Zealand coach Mike Hesson is reportedly being considered for the vacant Pakistan head coach job.

According to Hesson, 44 who coached the Black Caps for six years, including their 2015 World Cup run in Australia, is being scouted for the post previously held by Mickey Arthur.

It is understood the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has already approached Hesson, the website reported. 

Hesson had stepped down in June last year, replaced by Gary Stead as the head coach for New Zealand. 

In a post on Twitter, Hesson said he had parted ways with Indian Premier League franchise Kings XI Punjab after one season at the helm.

A day earlier, the PCB announced it had decided not to renew Arthur’s contract, which expired after last month’s World Cup in England.

Reports say Arthur has been shortlisted as the next England coach after Trevor Bayliss departs following the ongoing Ashes Test series.

Arthur joined Pakistan on May 2016, leading them to a drawn Test series with England that lifted them to the top of the rankings. For more latest news Pakistan, visit
