Pakistan appoint Matthew Hayden as mentor for 2022 T20WC

Hayden returns to the Pakistan setup after his first stint as a batting consultant

Australian legend, Matthew Hayden rejoins the Pakistan men’s setup as a mentor for the upcoming T20 World Cup Down Under, starting from October. Hayden was previously part of the Men in Green setup as a batting consultant during Pakistan’s progress through to the T20 World Cup semi-final in the Middle East. 

"I welcome Matthew Hayden back in Pakistan colours. He is a proven performer with his credentials acknowledged and recognised world-over. He brings with him wealth of knowledge about Australia conditions and I am confident his involvement will significantly benefit our extremely talented cricketers for the World Cup and future tours Down Under,” said PCB’s CEO Ramiz Raja.

"I would like to offer my gratitude to Bank AlFalah who have once again partnered with us on this appointment and hope they will remain connected with the PCB,” he added.

"I am extremely excited to be reuniting with the Pakistan team as their mentor for the ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Australia and can't wait to join the culture again and feel the spirit of One Nation One Passion,” said Hayden following the appointment. 

"I have seen how Pakistan have been performing in the ACC T20 Asia Cup and Sunday's win over India was brilliant. I think this Pakistan side has got what it takes to excel in Australia and the conditions will really suit them, both from a batting and bowling perspective. This team has all of its bases covered and I am sure it will light up the World Cup as it did in the UAE last year.”

"I feel privileged to be given an opportunity to pass on all my experience and knowledge about all conditions in Australia and can't wait to be back in the Pakistan dressing room."

Hayden will join the side in Brisbane on October 15, following the team’s arrival from Christchurch, where they will play a T20I tri-series with Bangladesh and New Zealand. Pakistan’s T20 World Cup journey begins against India, in Melbourne on October 23, rekindling their rivalry.
