    Former captain and wicketkeeper Moin Khan is the new coach of Pakistan, while Aamir Sohail has been removed as chief selector by the new management committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board.

    Sohail was appointed only last week by Zaka Ashraf, who was sacked on Monday as PCB chairman by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who appointed the eight-member management committee.

    PCB chief operating officer Subhan Ahmed says the committee endorsed Najam Sethi as its chairman during a meeting lasting well over five hours at Gaddafi Stadium.

    Ex-Test opener Shoaib Mohammad, son of the great Hanif Mohammad, was appointed as fielding coach while bowling coach Mohammad Akram's contract was extended for two years recently.

    Azhar Khan will be acting chief selector.
