Former South Africa internationals Morne Morkel and Andrew Puttick are expected to be hired by the PCB to serve as the bowling and batting coaches for the Pakistan men's team, respectively.

Additionally, the board approved Mickey Arthur's hiring as a consultant in addition to his continued employment as Derbyshire's head coach.

After his IPL commitment as bowling coach at Lucknow Super Giants, Morkel will formally join the team.

He previously served on the Namibia coaching staff for the Australia 2022 T20 World Cup, and he is currently the bowling coach for the Durban Super Giants in the SA20 League.

During the T20 World Cup in South Africa, he also spent some time playing for the New Zealand women's team.

With the full-time coaching staff will be on location, Arthur will work remotely in a special arrangement with the PCB.

Pakistan are set to host New Zealand for five T20Is and five ODIs starting April 14.
