LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Friday named Mickey Arthur as head coach of Pakistan cricket team. The decision came in the meeting of PCB panel comprising Wasim Akram, Ramiz raja, and Faisal Mirza. The panel announced that Arthur will be able to join the PCB by the end of May. Arthur confirmed his acceptance of the post of Head Coach of the Pakistan National Cricket team after a brief discussion with the PCB panel and Board of Governors members. The position fell vacant after former head coach Waqar Younis resigned from his post due to team’s poor performance in World T20 Cup. According to PCB, the modalities vis-à-vis his contract are being finalized. Arthur has played 110 first class games as a batsman in South Africa.
