Aaqib Javed returns as Pakistan bowling coach

Aaqib Javed, the former Pakistan fast bowler, has returned as the national team's bowling coach for the series against England in the UAE that starts in January.

Aaqib will be part of a nine-man support staff for the series. He has been involved in coaching within Pakistan for almost a decade now, having started at the Lahore Regional Academy and then had stints as Pakistan Under-19 coach and head coach at the National Cricket Academy. He was with the national team on and off since 2009, first as bowling coach and then as assistant coach, before he was removed from that position ahead of Pakistan's tour of Zimbabwe earlier in the year.

Aaqib was part of the coaching staff when Intikhab Alam was Pakistan's tour manager, and both were replaced prior to the tour of Zimbabwe. He is in contention to take the role of bowling coach on a full-time basis, as the PCB's search committee is believed to be interested in hiring home-grown batting and bowling coaches.

Ijaz Ahmed, the former Pakistan batsman, has been named fielding coach for the series against England while Mohsin Khan will continue as the interim head coach.
