Morne Morkel resigns as Pakistan bowling coach. As the bowling coach of the Pakistan Men’s squad, Morne Morkel, a former pacer for South Africa, has resigned, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Monday.

“Morne Morkel former south african pacer has left his position as the Pakistan Men’s team’s bowling coach. In June of this year, the former fast bowler from South Africa signed a six-month contract with the Pakistani side, according to a release from PCB.

The release also stated that “Morkel’s first assignment with the men’s team was their tour to Sri Lanka for the two-match Test series.”

The cricket association also revealed that Morkel’s replacement will be revealed when it’s appropriate. The Pakistan Cricket Board will make an announcement on his successor soon. The PCB announced that Pakistan’s next assignment is a three-match Test series against Australia, which is slated to take place in Australia from December 14, 2023, to January 7, 2024.

Remarkably, Morne Morkel resigned a few days after Pakistan was eliminated from the 2023 ICC World Cup in the group round and did not advance to the elimination stage.

Pakistan lost the semi-final match when they could only reach 30/2 in 6.4 overs while facing a daunting 338-run goal.

Nothing short of a wild ride characterized the Green Shirts’ 2023 ICC World Cup campaign. The team captained by Babar Azam won their first two games in the World Cup.

They defeated Sri Lanka by six wickets after defeating the Netherlands by 81 runs in their opening match of the tournament. This was the biggest run chase in ODI World Cup history.

Nevertheless, it was an abrupt turn of events for the green team, as they lost their first four World Cup games in its history.
