The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is yet to decide on the future of head coach Mickey Arthur as he has expressed his desire to continue with the current squad for at least two years. The board would make an official announcement in the next couple of days as they are trying to explore all options.
One of the options is the replacement of Arthur as he has had enough time with the team but has not produced results accordingly. Many former players and coaches would be interested to take up the job while the window of opportunity is still open. Here are five potential replacements of Mickey Arthur for the job of head coach of team Pakistan:
Dean Jones could be a good choice for the job as he has been involved with the Pakistan Super League (PSL) since 2016 and is quite in touch with the local talent coming through. Jones has proven himself to be an effective coach as he has gotten consistent results out of the weakest side in the PSL, Islamabad United.
Former Black Caps head coach Mike Hesson could be another good choice as he has the experience of mentoring a young side and taking it to the top. Hesson not only knows how to get the job done but is also fairly young which was also the reason behind his successful stint with the New Zealand team.
Mohsin Hasan Khan has also shown interest in taking the responsibility as he recently resigned from the cricket committee just, so he could serve the PCB in his previous capacity i.e., the head coach of national side.
The PCB might look towards former pacer Wasim Akram as well as he has the experience of coaching in the IPL and he could also groom the upcoming fast bowlers along with giving a direction to the batsmen.
