The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s Cricket Committee will meet Head Coach Mickey Arthur on July 27, inorder to discuss team’s performance over the past three years.    

According to details, committee members, Wasim Akram, Misbahul Haq and Urooj Mumtaz, along with chairman Wasim Khan, who is also PCB’s Managing Director, will hold a meeting with Arthur and discuss the performance of the Men in Green during the latter’s tenure. The Pakistan head coach will also present a report on team’s performance since he took over, and also the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup in England and Wales.  

It must be noted that Arthur’s three-year contract with the PCB has ended but the South African is keen on continuing in the role in the future as well.

After the meeting, the committee will forward its recommendations to Chairman PCB Ehsan Mani — who will make the final decision on the head coach’s future.

Pakistan won the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy and reached the top of ICC T20I rankings, during Arthur’s reign as head coach, but their inconsistent performances in Test matches and One-Day Internationals (ODIs) left a lot to desire.

The Men in Green finished on fifth position in the 2019 World C

The committee is expected to hold similar meetings with Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and other people associated with the team in due course.
