The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ehsan Mani and Managing Director Wasim Khan met Head Coach Mickey Arthur in London to discuss the latter's future.

According to details, the meeting lasted approximately 90 minutes.

Apart from the general discussion regarding the team's performance during the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup, the meeting also shed light on the process for the appointment of the next coach.

Mani gave Arthur no assurances regarding his future, although the South African insisted that he will like to continue in the role.

Arthur is also expected to make a presentation in the cricket committee's next meeting -- after which a final call will be made about the future of the Pakistan head coach.

Every World Cup failure for Pakistan sparks a wave of reviews and sackings and the promise of a fresh approach, until the team wins again and all is forgotten.

The script is expected to be similar after Sarfaraz Ahmed's team failed to make the semi-finals in England and Wales despite a late charge.

Pakistan won four straight matches to finish level on 11 points with New Zealand, but they bowed out of the tournament due to an inferior net run-rate.
