Pakistan cricket team’s bowling coach Morne Morkel, who had signed a six-month contract, is unlikely to continue in the role, sources told Geo News Monday.
Morkel signed a short-term contract with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) due to his engagements with different leagues.
Former cricketer Umar Gul, who has already served as the team’s bowling coach in the past, is expected to take on the role once again, said the sources.
Morkel coached the national team for the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka which the Green Shirts won 2-0, and a one-day international (ODI) series against Afghanistan which ended in Pakistan white-washing the opponents.
He also coached the team for the Asia Cup and World Cup.
Morkel, 38, served the South African cricket team in 318 international matches and claimed a total of 544 wickets.
His 544 international wickets consisted of 309 Test wickets in 160 innings, 188 in 114 ODIs and 47 in 44 T20Is.
Pakistan are set to play a three-match Test against Australia starting next month.
