Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday appointed former Pakistani batsman Inzamam-ul-Haq as a batting consultant for the national team ahead of their upcoming tour of India.

Inzamam, who played 120 Tests and 378 one-day internationals for Pakistan, was regarded as one of the finest batsmen of his time.

Talking to media representatives in Lahore, the PCB Chief Zaka Ashraf said that Inzamam had agreed to help as a batting consultant before the tour.

“Inzamam will help the batsmen in the camp but since he is busy he will not go on the tour,” Ashraf said.

Pakistan has been on the lookout for a coach to overcome batting weaknesses that have proved troublesome at an international level.

“We hope that the team will perform well on the tour and for this balanced squads have been selected,” said Ashraf, hoping star all-rounder Shahid Afridi will win back his place on the one-day squad.

“For me every player is equal and we have a strict policy of merit. Afridi has been going through a bad patch and I hope he removes his flaws,” said Ashraf of Afridi being dropped from the one-dayers but selected for the T20s.

Pakistan team will start its India tour from December 22. The team will play three one-day Internationals and two Twenty20s against the host side.
