Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) may rope in former opener Saeed Anwar to put its house in order.
Anwar met PCB chief Ijaz Butt on Wednesday, following which speculations are rife that the former southpaw may get a key position in the board.
Former Pakistan Test batsman Saeed Anwar has now emerged as a candidate to take over as the national team"s new coach.
“PCB chairman and Saeed will meet again in the coming week to discuss the plan in detail," the spokesperson of PCB said.
After the meeting, Butt said he is looking forward to share Anwar"s vast on-field experience.
“I am thankful for Saeed"s encouraging response and I am sure Saeed will be able to contribute a lot to Pakistan cricket," The Daily Times quoted Butt, as saying.
Anwar, who retired from international cricket in 2003, has since remained away from cricket affairs, by devoting most of his time to religious activities.
Anwar still holds the record of scoring the highest individual number of runs (194) in one-day cricket, which he made against India in Chennai in 1997.
