Who is the highest-paid coach of the Pakistan Cricket Team?

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is causing an uproar in the cricket world by announcing plans to hire a new coach. According to reports, Shane Watson could become the highest-paid coach in Pakistan cricket history. PCB is proposing Shane Watson, currently the coach for Quetta Gladiators, a stunning $2 million annual pay, potentially making him Pakistan cricket’s highest-paid coach yet.

However, there is a twist: Watson may decline the offer for reasons related to family.

Let’s see whether Watto will take on this job or not and become the most expensive coach PCB has ever hired for the national team.

Why Watson is being considered?

Shane Watson was given the role of a coach in Quetta Gladiators. Before that, he didn’t have any proper experience in the field. Nadeem Omer, the owner of QG, wanted him to take on this role because he wanted to inculcate the Aussie aggression in the team.

It seems like the formula has worked. Quetta Gladiators have been struggling in the tournament for the past 5 years. However, now, they will play in the knockout stages.

This has sparked the attention of the stakeholders. That is why, you can say that Watson is being considered, and PCB is willing to pay a hefty sum to get him on board.

Options PCB has for the coaching

While Watson’s name is being mentioned, Mike Hesson and Daren Sammy are also in the running for the coaching position of Pakistan’s national cricket side.

Hesson guides Islamabad United, and Sammy is the coach of Peshawar Zalmi.

Under Mohsin Naqvi’s supervision, PCB is attempting to establish a top-tier coaching staff. However, attracting well-known coaches may be difficult because many are committed to leagues throughout the world.

Local vs international coaches in PCT

To fill the coaching position quickly, PCB is exploring a combination of local coaches and international advisors.

This method is intended to provide timely support for the forthcoming T20I series against New Zealand. The Pakistan-New Zealand T20I series begins on April 18. And PCB is eager to finalize its coaching team before the match.


As the PCB handles the coaching situation, the cricketing community expects an announcement on who will lead Pakistan’s cricket team. If it’s Watson, Hesson, Sammy, or another contender, the selection has the potential to alter Pakistan’s cricket destiny.
