In this regard, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is holding negotiations with Watson, who is currently serving as the head coach of Quetta Gladiators.

Among the potential contenders are also Mike Hesson and Daren Sammy for the coaching role.

PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi is likely to soon decide on the appointment of the new coach.
