Know Our Coaches: Adnan Sabri
Experience breeds confidence, it is often said, and that epitomises the coaching philosophy of Adnan Sabri.
One of the most experienced coaches at the ICC Academy, having been associated with us since 2010, Adnan’s versatility sees him work across several coaching platforms, ranging from specialist, tailor-made one-on-one coaching to every strata of the Warriors Programme.
Adnan’s love for the gentleman’s game is showcased in his storied cricketing career. A right-handed opening batsman and occasional leg-break bowler during his playing days, Adnan played domestic cricket for the Pakistan Automobile Corporation, starring alongside future Pakistan internationals Wasim Akram, Ijaz Ahmed and Saeed Anwar, and the Karachi cricket team from 1982 to 1987, captaining the latter during his final year there.
Having also represented the Pakistan Boards team and with stints abroad in Kenya, Adnan brings to his job a unique blend of experience that can only be brought about by playing the game. In addition, Adnan has also coached the Pakistan Customs Domestic Cricket Team.
Adnan has since reinforced his playing experience with elite level coaching experience and qualifications in both his native Pakistan and here at the ICCA, in addition to qualifications from the Red Cross Society of Pakistan.
Working with children to bring out the best in them is something Adnan specialises in. He is the ICC Academy’s point man when it comes to one-on-one coaching with the next generation of cricketing starlets, often being called upon to lend his expertise to sessions at the Academy when cricketers from abroad come to train at our world-class facilities.
With such a unique blend of playing and coaching experience to his name, and with the leadership qualities and vision to provide tailor-made coaching to suit every individual’s needs, Adnan will ensure you get the best sporting education at the ICC Academy to forever harness your love of the game.
