Grant Bradburn is set to become Glamorgan’s new head coach next month, with a three-year deal marking the end of his brief stint as the head coach of Pakistan men’s cricket team. He took over from Saqlain Mushtaq last year and worked with Mickey Arthur. However, both Bradburn and Arthur faced uncertainty after Pakistan failed to make it to the World Cup semi-finals. Bradburn officially joined Pakistan in 2018 before moving up to head of high-performance coaching in 2020.
Bradburn is excited about his new role at Glamorgan and is committed to creating a winning environment with a strong team culture. He aims to develop quality players and staff and make Glamorgan contenders in all formats of the game. He will be working closely with Mark Alleyne, who is expected to remain on his coaching staff.
Glamorgan had a disappointing performance last year, failing to progress in the County Championship and white-ball competitions. Bradburn’s first task will be to appoint a new captain following the departure of former captain David Lloyd to Derbyshire. Mark Wallace, the director of cricket at Glamorgan, expressed his delight at Bradburn’s appointment, highlighting the wide range of experience he brings to the club.
