LAHORE: Newly appointed Pakistan team manager Wasim Bari said he would take his new role as a challenge. “I will try my best to do the job in a befitting manner and try to keep the Pakistan flag high on and off the field,” said Bari while talking to Express News. “Most of the players know me and I hope to be successful in the role.”
The former Pakistan wicketkeeper spent two days in Lahore and met with different officials including Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmed, Manager International Cricket Usman Wallah, bowling coach Mushtaq Ahmed, Assistant Manager and coach Shahid Aslam. He finalised all important aspects regarding the national team’s home series against the West Indies in the UAE.

“It is true that I am not a strict person but I have my own style of getting the job done,” Bari added.
However, he warned that there would be “no compromise” on discipline and said its implementation would be his top priority.
“If you are sincere with your job nothing is impossible,” he said before taking the flight back to Karachi. “You can earn positive results with sincere efforts and I will be doing my best to ensure success of our team.”
