New Delhi. Before the great match against India in the T20 World Cup, the Pakistan team (T20 World Cup IND vs PAK Match) has suffered a setback. Pakistan’s High Performance Coaching Chief Grant Bradburn has resigned from his post. Former New Zealand Test cricketer Bradburn was associated with PCB for 3 years. He was also the fielding coach of the Pakistan cricket team from September 2018 to June 2020. After this he took over the responsibility of development of coaching.
In a statement issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board, Bradburn said that it was a matter of pride to work with Pakistan Cricket. I am leaving with great memories and wonderful experience. I would like to thank PCB for giving me a great opportunity to learn as well. Brandburn is the fifth top official to step down since Rameez Raja took over as PCB chairman. Before him, Pakistan’s head coach Misbah-ul-Haq, bowling coach Waqar Younis, CEO Wasim Khan and marketing head Babar Hameed have stepped down.
Bradburn was Pakistan’s fielding coach for 3 years
Bradburn, 55, said that due to the Corona protocol, he was unable to spend time with his family. He further said that my wife Mari and three children have also sacrificed a lot by allowing me to serve Pakistan cricket. The COVID-19 regulations made it challenging for him to visit Pakistan and feel the warmth, love and friendship of this country. Now is the time for me to prioritize my family and move on to the next coaching challenge.
Bradburn played 7 Tests for New Zealand
Bradburn used to bowl off spin. He played 7 Tests and 11 ODIs for New Zealand from 1990 to 2001. Bradburn also coached the New Zealand-A and New Zealand Under-19 teams. He was given the responsibility of raising the level of training of the support staff working in all the High Performance Centers operating in the country by the Pakistan Cricket Board.
