Hayden was earlier appointed in the same role for Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2021 edition in which they were knocked out by Australia in the semi-finals! Hayden is very much excited to be appointed in the same role for Pakistan and this is what he has to say.

"I am with the Pakistan team as their mentor for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia and can’t wait to join the culture again and feel the spirit of One Nation One Passion. I have seen how Pakistan have been performing in the ACC T20 Asia Cup and Sunday’s win over India was brilliant," said Matthew Hayden.

"I think this Pakistan side has got what it takes to excel in Australia and the conditions will really suit them, both from a batting and bowling perspective. This team has all of its bases covered and I am sure it will light up the World Cup as it did in the UAE last year," added Hayden.

According to a report published on the ICC website, Hayden will join the Pakistan team on the 15th of October, the same day Pakistan will land in Australia from the T20 Tri-series in New Zealand! Like the 2021 edition, Pakistan will play their first game in the tournament on the 23rd of October against India at MCG in Melbourne!
