Moores refuses head coach of Pakistan job
Former England boss Peter Moores has turned down the chance to become the new head coach of Pakistan.
Waqar Younis stepped down last month after the team’s poor performance at the World Twenty20 in India.
The Pakistan Cricket Board has appointed former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq as the new chief selector.
But Moores said he declined a chance to return to international coaching after England sacked him for the second time last year.
“I was hugely flattered to be approached,” Moores, currently a consultant with Nottinghamshire, told Cricinfo. “And I was very tempted by such a prestigious role with an exciting team.
“But having thought about it deeply, I don’t think it is the right time for me or my family.
“I have committed myself to a consultancy role with Nottinghamshire and I am enjoying spending time with my kids as they grow up.”
