Coach Misbah-ul-Haq resigned after the World Cup squad was announced. A total of 16 teams are landing in the World Cup. The coaches of 7 teams are from South Africa. At the same time, three veterans of Australia are also commanding different teams. Talking about India, only Ravi Shastri is landing as a coach.
Former South African wicket-keeper batsman Mark Boucher has been appointed as the coach of the national team. Here Lance Klusener is the coach of Afghanistan, Russell Domingo of Bangladesh, Graham Ford of Ireland, Pier de Bruyne of Namibia, Shane Burger of Scotland and Mickey Arthur of Sri Lanka. Talking about Australia, apart from Matthew Hayden, Justian Langer is the coach of Australia while Ryan Campbell is the coach of Netherlands. England’s coach is England’s Chris Silverwood, New Zealand’s coach is Gary Stead of New Zealand, Oman’s coach is Sri Lanka’s Dilip Mendis, Papua New Guinea’s coach is Karl Sendry of Italy and West Indies’ coach is Phil Simmons of West Indies.
Matthew Hayden has no experience
The Pakistan team got a big setback before the start of the World Cup. The coach of the team, Misbah-ul-Haq, resigned after the controversy. Matthew Hayden has been named head coach. But the biggest disadvantage for the team is that Hayden does not have coaching experience. Even though he has been a big legend and won the ODI World Cup title twice, but lack of coaching experience can make things difficult for Hayden.
Ravi Shastri has great experience
Talking about Team India coach Ravi Shastri, he has a lot of experience. He is associated with Team India since 2017. Earlier, he had worked with the team in 2015-16 as well. The team has entered the Champions Trophy, ODI World Cup and World Test Championship. The team has performed well abroad under Shastri’s coaching. The team won the T20 World Cup in 2007 under Greg Chappell, the 2011 ODI World Cup under Gary Kirsten and the 2013 Champions Trophy under the coaching of Duncan Fletcher. That is, all three coaches were foreigners. In such a situation, Shastri also has a chance to change it. Team India has not won the ICC trophy since 2013.
Simmons has made West Indies champion
This is the 7th season of the T20 World Cup. So far only 5 teams have won the title. West Indies have won twice while India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and England have won once each. Talking about West Indies coach Phil Simmons, under his coaching, West Indies team has won the T20 World Cup title in 2016. He has a vast experience of coaching career spanning 17 years. Talking about the same England coach Chris Silverwood, he has been coaching since 2010. He was made the bowling coach of the English team in 2018. He was also part of the team that won the 2019 ODI World Cup. After the World Cup, in October 2019, he was made the head coach of the team.

Mickey Arthur no less
South Africa’s Mickey Arthur also has a long coaching experience. He has been continuously associated with it since 2003. Apart from Sri Lanka, he has also worked with Australia and Pakistan team. It was under his coaching that Pakistan won the Champions Trophy title in 2017. Under his coaching, Pakistan’s team also became the number-1 team of Test and T20. However, after 2019, he was removed. Arthur has a new Sri Lankan team. The performance of the team at the international level has not been good in the last 2 years. In such a situation, it will not be easy for him to perform well in the UAE. The T20 World Cup matches are to be held from October 17 to November 14. The team also has to play round-1 match before Super-12.
