The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has brought back former Test captain, Intikhab Alam as the manager of the national team after the troubled tour to England.
"Intikhab Alam has been appointed manager only for the South Africa series," PCB media manager Nadeem Sarwar told Reuters. "The board will take decisions on future series later on."
Alam, who was coach of the national team until early this year, replaces Yawar Saeed who stepped down as manager after the controversial England tour.
Alam was coach between October 2008 to the shambolic tour to Australia early this year after which he was replaced as coach by Waqar Younis.
