Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has declared in a public announcement today, that it will not extend the contracts of Batting, Bowling and Fielding coaches. After this announcement, Mickey Arthur (the Coach), Azhar Mahmood ( the bowling coach) and Grant Flower ( the batting coach) will be replaced by a new approach.
Mickey Arthur, who is still the coach of Pakistan Cricket Team till the conract expires, reacted with sad remarks:
I am extremely disappointed and hurt. I did my wholehearted effort to lift Pakistan cricket”.
The PCB Cricket Committee announced a robust recruitment for the available post and it will be accepting applications from the suitable candidates.
This sudden announcement was called on post the Cricket World Cup 2019. Pakistan though did not started well, but it ended up among the top five teams. IF things went their way, Pakistan might have claimed a second World Cup Title after 1992.
Nevertheless, PCB is looking for a new start. This is important before the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 and with PSL 2020 to be held in Pakistan, it will boost Pakistan Cricket To the new heights.
