Mickey Arthur, the former director of the Pakistan cricket team, is contemplating a departure from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Sources suggest that Arthur is expected to announce his decision following discussions with the PCB.
In the previous World Cup in India, Arthur served as Pakistan’s team director; however, the PCB’s Management Committee opted to part ways with foreign coaches due to the team’s unsatisfactory performance.
After this decision, coaches, including Arthur, were reassigned to the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Subsequently, post-World Cup, bowling coach Morne Morkel resigned, and batting coach Andrew Puttick recently left to join the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB).
In a series of departures, former head coach Grant Bradburn bid farewell to the PCB on Monday. Bradburn, who took over from Saqlain Mushtaq last year, supervised the Test series against New Zealand and Sri Lanka and managed the team in the 50-over World Cup 2023 in India.
Having concluded his tenure with the PCB, Bradburn is poised to embark on a new role at Glamorgan next month, where he will lead the Welsh county team across various cricket formats.
