Following the early World Cup exit, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will be immediately undertaking a robust recruitment process after it decided not to renew the contracts of Head Coach Mickey Arthur, Bowling Coach Azhar Mahmood, Batting Coach Grant Flower and Trainer Grant Luden.
The contracts of the current coaches are due to expire on August 15. The PCB Cricket Committee had suggested the chairman Ehsan Mani to not give the coaching staff any extension and look for new coaches after analyzing their performance diligently.
“On behalf of the PCB, I want to sincerely thank Mickey Arthur, Grant Flower, Grant Luden and Azhar Mahmood for their hard work and unwavering commitment during their tenures with the national men’s team. We wish them every success in their future endeavours,” Mani said.
As part of the recruitment process, the PCB will now advertise the four available roles and will invite high-level applications from interested candidates, a press release stated.
