Multan Sultans Appoints Ex PCB Chief Selector As Assistant Coach
Multan Sultans, a franchise in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), has named Mohammad Wasim, the former Chief Selector, as their new assistant coach for the forthcoming ninth edition of the tournament.
In their official announcement on social media, the former PSL champions expressed their excitement about welcoming Mohammad Wasim as the new Assistant Coach. They emphasized that Wasim’s previous roles as the chief selector of the national team and head coach of Northern would bring significant value to their data-driven team.

Mohammad Wasim, in response, took to Twitter to express his gratitude to Multan Sultans for extending this opportunity, stating that he felt honored to receive it. He pledged to do his utmost to meet the team’s expectations and even used a laptop emoji, a reference to his well-known use of laptops during his tenure as the national team’s chief selector.
Notably, Mohammad Wasim, who represented Pakistan in both red and white-ball cricket, served as the Chief Selector for the Pakistan national team from 2020 to 2022.
In a separate development, Multan Sultans made history last month by appointing Hijab Zahid as their first female general manager, succeeding Haider Azhar for the upcoming edition. Additionally, they appointed local coach Abdur Rehman as the head coach, succeeding Zimbabwean cricket legend Andy Flower.
Multan Sultans, winners of the 2021 PSL title and finalists in the last three editions, are currently in a period of transition following the recent passing of Alamgir Tareen.
