Misbah-ul-Haq Likely to Fill the Chair of Mickey Arthur as Pakistan’s Head Coach
- Former captain of the National Cricket Team, Misbah-ul-Haq has emerged as the top contender for the team head coach.
- He is likely to replace Mickey Arthur as head coach of the team and the public is looking forward to the betterment of the national team.
- Misbah is the strongest candidate for the Pakistani team Head Coach and will be an ideal person for the job.
Affectionately known as TukTuk by his fans, Pakistan’s cricket great Misbah-ul-Haq is likely to fill the chair of Mickey Arthur as the team’s head coach.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided against renewing Mickey Arthur’s contract along with bowling and batting coaches.
Some Achievements by Misbah-ul-Haq:
Misbah-ul-Haq is also a part of the high-profile Cricket Committee which presented its recommendations to the board about the performance of the team and the management in the past three years.
Misbah has headed Pakistan in 56 test matches with 26 wins, the most by any Pakistani and a win percentage of 46.42.
After taking over the captaincy post-2010 spot-fixing saga, Misbah took Pakistan to the number one rank in the longest format. Not only this, he has also captained the national team in 87 ODIs with a 53.48% winning record.
The former Pakistani fast-bowling player Mohammad Akram is likely to take over as a bowling coach and if someone else is hired for the head coach role, Misbah might also serve as the batting coach.
PCB Cricket Committee Discussed Performance of Team
On August 2, Mickey Arthur appeared before the PCB cricket committee on to give his views on Pakistan’s showing in the World Cup19 where Sarfraz Ahmed and his men failed to reach the semi-finals on net run-rate.
Arthur will be retained until the 2020 T20 World Cup. PCB cricket committee has discussed the performance of the national team and its officials during the last four years.
PCB cricket committee will forward its recommendations to Chairman of PCB, Ehsan Mani to decide on the head coach.
The PCB is looking to hire a young coach within Pakistan. We think it is a very good decision but sad also, as Misbah will not be in PSL-5 if selected coach. What are your thoughts?
