The Pakistan Cricket Board have extended bowling coach Mohammad Akram's contract for one month.

The extension will allow Akram to work with the team during October's series against South Africa in the United Arab Emirates.

Former wicketkeeper-batsman Moin Khan, meanwhile, has been named as manager for the tour.

"We have extended his contract for another month," a PCB spokesman told <i>ESPNcricinfo</i>.

"It is a decision amid the ongoing caretaker setup, in which the board cannot appoint nor make a call to terminate anyone's services in the light of the Islamabad High Court order.

"So, Akram will join Pakistan's squad next month in the UAE for the South Africa series."

Akram, who played nine Tests and 23 ODIs between 1995 and 2001, succeeded former bowling coach Aaqib Javed, who resigned in order to become head coach of the UAE last year.
