The Pakistan Cricket Board announced Friday that Mickey Arthur has been named as Head Coach of Pakistan’s National Cricket Team.
Friday’s announcement follows Waqar Younis’ resignation as Head Coach last month.
“Following detailed consultations on this matter at the last Board Of Governors’ meeting and further telephone consultations by the PCB Chairman with BOG members, discussions with Mickey Arthur were initiated and he has confirmed his acceptance of the post of Head Coach of the Pakistan National Cricket team,” the Pakistan Cricket Board said in a press release, adding that details of Arthur’s contract are still being finalized.
It is expected that Mickey Arthur will be able to join the team toward the end of May.
Arthur played 110 first class games as a batsman in South Africa, as well as a coach leading the South African national team to world number one rankings across all formats, and winning 13 consecutive ODIs, equaling Australia’s world record. Arthur served on the ICC Cricket Committee 2008 – 2010.
