Karachi: South African-based Englishman Richard Pybus has been named Pakistan cricket coach for the fourth time, officials said Thursday.[an error occurred while processing this directive]"Pybus has been confirmed as Pakistan coach for a short term until the first week of November," Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) media manager Khalid Butt told AFP.It will be the fourth time that Pybus has taken charge of the team. He was coach in the 1999 World Cup, then returned for Pakistan's tour of Australia in 1999-2000 season and also coached the team on its tour of England in May-June this year.He will join the Pakistan training camp on Sunday, and will help it in the upcoming two matches of the Asian Test Championship (ATC) series and the tri-nations series in Sharjah, Butt said.Pybus, 41, initially turned down a PCB offer to serve as coach until the 2003 World Cup citing family commitments, but officials agreed the short-term contract after it failed to woo any other foreign coach.Sources said PCB will start further negotiations with Pybus after the expiry of the latest contract.
