The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) named the national team’s team management before the much-anticipated T20I and ODI series against New Zealand.

According to a release from the cricket board, Rehan-ul-Haq has been named team manager. He is the general manager of Islamabad United, which has won the Pakistan Super League (PSL) twice.

Grant Bradburn, a former New Zealand Test cricketer, will be the head coach, and Abdul Rehman will be his helper. Andrew Puttick will come as a coach for hitting, and Umar Gul will keep his job as a coach for bowling.
