Grant Flower, the brother of former Zimbabwe skipper, Andy Flower has been given a two-year contract by the PCB after he applied for the position two months back.
     
His appointment has sparked off some debate in Pakistan cricket circles with many unconvinced whether he will be able to bring about a improvement in Pakistan's inconsistent batting line up.
     
Many former greats including Javed Miandad, Mohsin Khan, Abdul Qadir and Inzamam-ul Haq have questioned the choice as the country has produced many batting greats.
     
Flower played 67 Tests and scored 3457 runs besides appearing in 221 ODIs scoring 6571 runs. He also took 25 Test and 104 ODI wickets for his country before turning to coaching.
     
Pakistan's former leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed is said to have played a key role in getting Grant interested in the Pakistan job after using his contacts with Andy Flower having worked under him in the England team.
