PCB in talks with Sir Viv Richards for role of team mentor in T20 WC

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is in talks with legendary West Indian batsman Sir Vivian Richards to secure his services as a mentor for the national team ahead of the upcoming Asia Cup and ICC World T20 in the Caribbean and United States.

As per Dunya News Urdu, a senior source within the Board confirmed that negotiations are ongoing with Richards, as the PCB is eager to leverage his expertise for the T20, especially during the West Indies leg of the tournament.

“The board is highly impressed with how Richards has performed as a mentor with the Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League. They are keen to have him mentor the Pakistan squad for the World T20,” the source revealed.

One significant hurdle in appointing Richards is his existing media commitments during the ICC World T20 World Cup.

“They are working to find a solution because the Board is very keen on having Richards as the mentor, but he has not yet agreed to anything,” the source added.
