Ex-Pakistan cricket coach Mickey Arthur will take charge of the Central Districts in New Zealand’s Super Smash T20 competition. The 51-year-old recently left his role as Pakistan head coach following the conclusion of the World Cup, where Pakistan failed to advance into the knockout stage of the tournament.
Arthur, who previously coached South Africa and Australia, will join the Central Stags camp on December 1, 12 days before the start of the league. In the world of franchise cricket, he has been involved with CPL’s Jamaica Tallawahs, BPL’s Dhaka Dynamites, and PSL’s Karachi Kings.
"I have always admired New Zealand cricket and to work in the system is going to be very exciting. This is a great opportunity for me and I can't wait to help the Central Stags defend the title, but also, to contribute to an environment of excellence and enhance the skills of the cricketers,” Arthur said after his appointment.
