Before T20 World Cup 2024, Pakistan played a big bet, efforts continue to include the legendary West Indies batsman for an important role.

 



Pakistan Viv Richards: T20 World Cup 2024 is to be organized in West Indies and America in June . All the teams participating in the World Cup are already making their strategy for the tournament. Meanwhile, big news is coming out from the neighboring country Pakistan. Actually, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) wants to include former West Indies batsman Vivian Richards with the team for the T20 World Cup. PCB is planning to appoint the Caribbean legend as the mentor of Pakistan cricket team.

PCB wants to make Vivian Richards a mentor

Vivian Richards has played the role of mentor for Quetta Gladiators in Pakistan Super League in 2016. In such a situation, he is well aware of the players of Pakistan. PCB sources while talking to PTI said, 'PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi wants to add a big name to the national team. He wants to make Vivian Richards the mentor of the team. Most of the Super-8 matches of the T20 World Cup are to be held in the Caribbean country, so Vivian's domestic experience can be of great benefit to the Pakistan team.

The PCB source further said, 'Sir Vivian Richards already has some commitments for the World Cup but things are being worked out because the players of the Pakistan team respect him a lot. If PCB signs an agreement with the Caribbean legend, he can become the mentor of the team during the World Cup.

Pakistan appointed former Australian veteran opener Matthew Hayden as the mentor of the team in the 2021 and 2022 T20 World Cups. During this, Pakistan reached the semi-finals in 2021 and the finals in the 2022 T20 World Cup.

Apart from the mentor, the PCB source also said that Mohsin Naqvi has also ordered the appointment of a foreign curator and Australian curator Tony Hemmings is being considered a big contender for this post.

Let us tell you that before the T20 World Cup, Pakistan team has to play a four-match T20 series against England from May 22. This series is considered very important from the point of view of the team's preparations.
