Zimbabwe Cricket replaced coach Dav Whatmore and captain Hamilton Mazakadza with former South Africa pacer Makhaya Ntini and Graeme Cremer.
Dav Whatmore was at the helm of Pakistan for two years from 2012. Currently with the Zimbabwe team, the coach can help in piling on more misery on Misbah-ul-Haq and his men who have lost both their opening matches.
Dav Whatmore, who in February ended his contract as Pakistan coach, has joined ICC's High Performance Programme in advisory role.
Under Dav Whatmore, who took over in March 2012, Pakistan have not won a Test series but attained heights by beating India in India and South Africa in South Africa - both in one-day series.
PCB chief Najam Sethi says that since the final verdict from the Islamabad High Court divisional bench is still awaited, they cannot take appointment decisions.
Many former Pakistani players had criticised the decision of the cricket board to appoint a foreigner as a coach, pointing out that the language barrier was always a big impediment between the coach and the players.
Former Pakistan wicketkeeper Moin Khan is believed to take over as head coach for a short period after Dav Whatmore's contract expires in February.
Abdul Razzaq pulled a hamstring during practice at the Wanderers last Sunday, while Shoaib Malik could not recover in time from a blow on his finger during Pakistan's six-run loss against the Proteas in the second T20 at Dubai last Friday.
The PCB said in its statement that Whatmore had asked to be released from his contract when it came up for review in February next year.
The 59-year-old Australian Dav Whatmore, who took over in March 2012, has faced mounting criticism over Pakistan's dismal run of results in recent months, with ex-players regularly calling for him to go.
