Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday said that it will not renew the contracts of head coach Mickey Arthur and his support staff, including batting coach Grant Flower.
The Pakistan Cricket Board announced that it will be immediately undertaking a robust recruitment process after refusing to renew the contracts of Arthur, Flower, bowling coach Azhar Mahmood, and trainer Grant Luden.
In a statement the Board 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.”
The recommendations have been forwarded and discussed with PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani.
Mani said: “The unanimous recommendation of the Committee was that it was time for new leadership and a fresh approach. I am happy to accept their strong recommendations.”
“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 endeavors,” he added.
“The PCB remains committed to its fans and followers and we will do our utmost to ensure that we make decisions that continue to move Pakistan cricket forward in all formats,” Mani said.
