The Pakistan cricket team has enjoyed periods of lows and highs ever since Mickey Arthur took charge as head coach in May 2016. The Champions Trophy triumph in 2017 was the greatest achievement by Pakistan in a long time.
Arthur received a contract extension of another two years after the Champions Trophy win, which is about to expire this year at the conclusion of the ICC Cricket World Cup. However, the South African is looking forward for another stint with the PCB, saying it would be disappointing for him if that doesn't happen.
“I’d love to continue with PCB, there’s no secret as I have said it a million times. I think there’s going to be a review (after the World Cup). I think there’s been some really good work done over time. Yes, we had some disappointing times and it comes and goes with cricket. But I think if it does not happen it will disappointing, but we can look back at the three years knowing we’ve made a significant contribution to Pakistan cricket,” the 51-year-old said.
Under Arthur’s tenure, Pakistan won 10 out of the 28 Test matches they have played. Furthermore, they had a fine streak in T20Is as they won 30 matches out of 37 games.
