Former Pakistan pacer, Umar Gul, has been appointed Afghanistan's bowling coach. He is set to take over the role from their upcoming tour of Zimbabwe where they are set to compete in three ODIs and as many T20Is.

Gul had a recent stint with the Afghanistan team as a bowling consultant along with former Pakistan captain Younis Khan, who had been roped in as the batting consultant. Gul has a similar coaching experience with the Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League. Earlier in the year, Afghanistan had also announced Graham Thorpe as their new head coach, replacing the outgoing Lance Klusener.
