LAHORE: Former Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram on Saturday confirmed that he will be serving as the interim head coach of the Karachi Kings over the remainder of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 this month. The Sultan of swing, in a live video conference on YouTube with Cricslab, said that Jones cannot be replaced and will be immensely missed during the remaining PSL matches, but admitted that he will be “helping” the franchise. He said: “I am not taking Jones’s place as Kings’ head coach. I mean he will be missed throughout and we will leave his seat in our dressing room with his name.” The Kings, who qualified for the play-offs courtesy of their second-place finish in the round-robin stage, lost their coach Dean Jones, who died from a heart attack last month in India.
