Misbah-ul-Haq is likely to be the new replacement for Pakistan Cricket Team’s former coach Mickey Arthur.
The Pakistan Cricket Board had decided not to renew the contract of the coach, likelihood suggests that Misbah-ul-Haq, the former Pakistani skipper would be the Interim coach of the national cricket team till PCB finds a suitable replacement.
One of the biggest reasons for not renewing the contract is thought to be Pakistan’s performance at World Cup 2019. Even though the team had performed well in the second half of the tournament, it was too late.
PCB has invited all applicants to apply for the position of coach, there are also other vacancies for the coaching staff. Misbah is likely to be the batting coach for the time being.
PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani said:
I am thankful to the PCB Cricket Committee for submitting their recommendations following an exhaustive and detailed review process. The committee comprised of individuals who possess tremendous acumen, experience, and knowledge.
The unanimous recommendation of the Committee was that it was time for new leadership and a fresh approach. I am happy to accept their strong recommendations.
On behalf of the PCB, I want to sincerely thank Mickey Arthur, Grant Flower, Grant Luden and Azhar Mahmood for their hard work and unwavering commitment during their tenures with the national men’s team. We wish them every success in their future endeavors.
The PCB remains committed to its fans and followers and we will do our utmost to ensure that we make decisions that continue to move Pakistan cricket forward in all formats.
We have now to see what the future holds for Misbah-ul-Haq and Pakistan Cricket Team.
