KARACHI: Islamabad United will be under another lead trainer in the Pakistan Super League 2021 after the establishment declared it was heading out in different directions with previous commander and Head Coach Misbah ul Haq.

The establishment, in a proclamation on Thursday, affirmed that it won’t reestablish the agreement with Misbah as lead trainer because of his “commitment with the national side and the new conflict of interest rules of the PCB.”

Misbah was appointed as Islamabad United’s head coach in December 2019, while already serving as chief selector and head coach of the Pakistan team.

Under Misbah’s tenure as head coach, the two times champion finished at the bottom of the PSL 5 table and for the first time, failed to qualify for play-offs.

“Islamabad United […] has announced today that the already expired contract of Misbah ul Haq as its Head Coach will not be renewed, given Misbah’s commitment with the National side and the new conflict of interest rules of the PCB,” the franchise said in a statement.

The franchise, thanking Misbah for his association with them, wished him the best in his current role with the national side.

Misbah-ul-Haq, the active IU mentor, said he currently needs to zero in on his tasks with the Pakistan team.

“With back-to-back World T20s coming up, I want to focus on the PSL from a purely neutral perspective. For anyone involved in Pakistan Cricket their national commitments should always be the priority, and for that, I believe I will have to sacrifice my franchise commitments,” Misbah said.

The establishment will report another lead trainer for the PSL6 in due course.
