Najam Sethi during a media interaction confirmed that deal with Mickey Arthur is almost done and that his contract is likely to be completed within the next two weeks or so. It is worth mentioning here that Mickey is likely to take over as Pakistan’s Director of Cricket. He is also expected to do most of his work online because of his prior commitment with the Derbyshire county.
Najam Sethi Says “80 Percent” Of Things Finalized With Mickey Arthur
While shedding light on the possible new appointment chairman, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said, “We are almost there, I would say it is done 80%. We have discussed people who would be in his team and other aspects of his contracts. I think in the next couple of weeks everything will be in black and white.”
Talking about the possible change of venue for Asia Cup Najam further said, “Nothing was decided in the last ACC meeting, we are meeting again in March on the sidelines of ICC meetings, we will see what happens then.”
India so far remains unwilling to tour Pakistan for the #AsiaCup2023 while Pakistan on the other hand has threatened to return the favour by not touring India for the ICC world cup that is scheduled to be played later in the year.
