Grant Bradburn leaves Pakistan Cricket

Grant Bradburn has decided to step down from his coaching duties as Pakistan’s Head of High-Performance Center to pursue further coaching opportunities.

During his three year regime, he has served as the bowling coach of the national team from September 2018 to June 2020 before being appointed for the development of coaching responsibilities.

Bradburn is the fifth high-profile person to resign from his duties from Pakistan Cricket since Ramiz Raja took over the board’s chairperson charge. Earlier, Misbah ul Haq, Waqar Younis stepped down together as head, bowling coaches. Wasim Khan, the CEO, and Babar Hameed, the head of marketing were the next two in the lane.

The 55-year-old says that he felt highly welcomed and loved under the cricket-loving nation’s warm hospitality. He feels it is the right time to depart for his backyard with his family anticipating, that has sacrificed a lot amidst the COVID surge.

“It has been an honour and privilege to serve Pakistan, providing challenge and support, to drive the players, coaches and teams forward. I will leave PCB grateful for the wonderful opportunities and the experiences I have gained.

“As a foreigner, I felt welcomed and valued by my present and former PCB colleagues, players, officials and the Pakistan public. I have always felt safe here, loved exploring this wonderful country and made many lifetime friends.

“My wife Maree and three children have also sacrificed a lot in allowing me to serve Pakistan cricket. Covid-19 regulations made it challenging for them to visit Pakistan and feel the warmth, love and friendship this country offers. It is now time for me to prioritise family and move forward to the next coaching challenge.”
