Ahead of the Asia Cup 2018, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday (September 6) announced the appointment of the fielding coach for the team. The former New Zealand cricketer, Grant Bradburn has been named as the fielding coach for Pakistan on a full-time basis.

The Kiwi will join the team in the upcoming Asia Cup and will continue his services for three years. Bradburn previously worked as the full-time coach for Scotland Cricket (SC).

It is a great honour to coach Pak – Grant Bradburn

Speaking of the appointment, the fielding coach Bradburn revealed he is elated and feeling proud to join Pakistan’s coaching panel. Further, he showered heaps of praises on their head coach Mickey Arthur.

Pakistan is delivering goods across formats of the game under the watchful eyes of Arthur.

Meanwhile, Bradburn takes the privilege to join Arthur’s to coach Sarfraz Ahmed-led side.

“It is a great honour to be joining Pakistan Cricket Team and their high-quality coaching staff. I have seen the progress that has been made under Mickey Arthur. And the opportunity to work with a leading full member team on the rise in world cricket, is a real privilege,” Grant Bradburn maintained as per PCB’s official website.

”Against Scotland in June, we saw the impressive changes that have been instilled. Noticeably with the physical stature and fielding abilities of Pakistan’s players. I look forward to adding my experience to the players and staff, while being an integral part of the exciting and dominant team, Team Pakistan is becoming,” he added.

All in all, it seems like a nice addition ahead of the 14th edition of Asia Cup scheduled to commence from September 15 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

However, it would be interesting to see how Grant Bradburn comes up with the new role for Pakistan. Perhaps, it would be easy for Grant as a fielding coach while considering the young bunch of guys in the squad.
