Mickey Arthur: The New Pakistani Coach

The Pakistan Cricket Board has finally decided to replace former cricket player and coach of Pakistani cricket team, Waqar Younis by South African former player Mickey Arthur. Waqar Younis resigned from his position after the tragic national defeat at Asia Cup and ICC World Twenty20 campaigns in India and Bangladesh.

Under Arthur’s coachman-ship, Pakistan’s tour of England would be the next cricket series where the national heroes would perform. According to the PCB spokesperson, they wanted to fill the position as soon as possible. However, critics question the board for their intention of assigning Mickey Arthur this role. He should not just be given this position to fill the vacant position, but he should be given full authority to practice his skills on the players, their selection and their improvement.

According to PCB, once Waqar Younis resigned, they followed a transparent procedure of inviting applications from the potential candidates. On the other hand, a panel was also selected, which included former players Wasim Akram and Ramiz Raja to give their suggestions for this position. There were total 4 suggestions given, out of which, PCB selected the one after careful consideration and suggestions. However, it is still hard to believe that there is no government and political interference in the process of suggesting and recommendations.

Nevertheless, it is now anticipated that Mickey Arthur would be preparing the team adequately. It is now his sharp role to identify all the weaknesses to overcome them by polishing the strengths of the players.
