Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as per the report of Geo Super has decided to retain Mickey Arthur till the #ICCODIWC23. It is worth mentioning here that all other Pakistan coaches too, as per the story are likely to retain their place. Earlier in the week, there was uproar on social media after multiple news reports suggested that the newly formed Misbah-ul-Haq led cricket committee might sack the coaching staff ahead of the ICC event i.e. scheduled to be played in India later in the year.

Mickey Arthur had joined the green shirts as the team’s cricket director earlier this year on the insistence of the then chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Najam Sethi. Najam however, unexpectedly had to give up his position in favor of Zaka Ashraf who soon after taking over handed Misbah-ul-Haq (who had previously played a part in Mickey’s removal as Pakistan’s head coach) the power to manage cricketing affairs of the board.
