|London, May 16(ANI): Former Pakistan leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed isn't expected to become the national team's bowling coach, as he is adamant about wanting a three-year contract.
Mushtaq, who has been working with the England team as a spin bowling consultant for the past three years, has expressed an interest to work with the Pakistan team, but wanted certain terms and conditions to be fulfilled.
"During a meeting with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf he made it clear that he would only work if given a three-year contract with a particular clause that the board couldn't sack him," The Daily Mail quoted a source, as saying.
"However, the board was not willing to accept his terms and conditions. Since then, the board has not contacted him, which is an indication that it is not willing to accept his rigid conditions," the source added.
The source further added Mushtaq is expected to sign another fresh contract with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), as he is being offered a good financial package and incentives and has adjusted well within the England dressing room.
The source said: "The other strong contender now for the Pakistan bowling coach's position is former Test fast bowler Mohammad Akram but all indications are that the national team's head coach Dav Whatmore is more interested in bringing in a person of
his own choice on the support team." (ANI)
