Mickey Arthur recently completed his 3 years as head coach of the Pakistan team. A period no short of drama on and off the field, Mickey’s stint in charge of the side has reaped quite a few benefits for the Men in Green, while there are moments where the team has underperformed in its potential.
Under his leadership, Pakistan’s performances have taken a hit in the longest format, partly explained by the retirements of Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan. Pakistan has thus faced defeat in 17 Tests and won 10 matches, forcing a single draw in 28 matches in the last 3 years. However, it was also in Arthur’s capacity that Pakistan briefly held the no.1 spot in the Test rankings.
In ODIs, Pakistan has a 50% win percentage losing 27 encounters and winning the same number. Most importantly, Pakistan miraculously won the Champions Trophy in 2017, the highlight of Mickey’s tenure.
In T20Is, Pakistan has become a force to be reckoned with. Creating a compact solid T20 unit, Pakistan surpasses all other teams in its domination in the shortest format. In the last 3 years, Pakistan has won 30 T20Is and lost a mere 7.
