Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad was entrusted with the responsibility of working as the batting coach with the Pakistan outfit.


Miandad is now working as the Director General of Pakistan Cricket Board.


PCB chairman Ijaz Butt told reporters that Miandad has been asked to work with Pakistani batsmen and prepare them for the Champions Trophy.


"Miandad will help and assist in preparing the Pakistan batsmen for the Champions Trophy in South Africa," Butt said after the PCB governing body's meeting.


"We have grey areas in the batting department and we want to work on those areas," he said.


"Miandad's huge experience and vast knowledge of the game made him an obvious choice for the job and the former captain has agreed to accept his new role," he added.
