Lahore:Former Test leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed has been re-appointed as assistant coach of the Pakistan cricket squad that begins the tour of South Africa from January 2.

''Mushtaq has impressed me a lot with his cricketing knowledge and I think he can be a better choice for the South African tour,'' local media reported PCB Chairman Nasim Ashraf as saying.

Dr Ashraf, who had sacked Mushtaq from the same post hours before the Pakistan team's departure for the ICC Champions Trophy in India, said he took the decision as Mushtaq was capable of serving the team.

Mustaq would stay with the team till the end of the tour while the bowling coach Waqar Younis would return home after the three-Test series, he said.
