Morne Morkel! Steps Down as Pakistan’s Bowling Coach After World Cup 2023 Exit

Morne Morkel, the renowned South African fast bowler, recently resigned as the bowling coach of the Pakistan national cricket team following their subpar performance in the 2023 World Cup. Having assumed the coaching role in June 2023, Morkel’s decision to step down signals a potential shakeup in the team’s coaching staff. Speculation surrounds the tenure of head coach Mickey Arthur, with uncertainties regarding his future.

Amidst these changes, former Pakistani bowler Umar Gul emerges as a potential candidate for the bowling coach position, particularly in anticipation of the upcoming tour to Australia. The decision comes on the heels of Pakistan’s World Cup campaign, where, captained by Babar Azam, the team concluded in the 5th position with four victories in nine matches.

The cricketing community awaits further developments, keen to see how these shifts in coaching personnel may impact the team’s future strategies and performances. The dynamics of coaching transitions, especially with experienced figures like Morkel stepping down, often evoke discussions on the broader trajectory and aspirations of the cricketing nation.
