Former Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur is poised to return as the head coach of the Pakistan cricket team yet again.
According to media reports, the PCB management committee is expected to finalize his contract within the next two weeks. Due to the ongoing pandemic, Arthur will fulfill his coaching duties primarily online until the 2023 ICC World Cup in India.
He will be on-site for limited assignments and will join the team in India for the World Cup. Arthur will continue to work as the full-time coach for Derbyshire County Cricket Club.
Former Pakistan captain Shahid Khan Afridi has said, “The concept of online coaching by a foreign coach for the national team is beyond comprehension; every era has the personal likes and dislikes of the captain to sustain Pakistan cricket.”
It will be necessary to work at the grassroots to provide the best training to the budding players.
It is very important to take strict measures for the survival and development of the country; he expressed these views while talking to the media; Shahid Khan Afridi said that he was very sorry for the Peshawar incident.
“Today and tomorrow have been heavy days for the nation; the incidents of Lisbela, Kohat, and Peshawar are sad, there must be a period of success in Pakistan, and difficult decisions will have to be made for the future. It is coming; success will send a positive message; online coaching of the Pakistan team is beyond understanding why only a foreign coach is necessary,” said Afridi.
There are competent and qualified people in Pakistan; I have not seen the existence of a rival group in the Pakistan team; every captain has personal likes and dislikes; in my time, there were also personal likes and dislikes, and the responsibility of the chief selector is very important. Peshawar was not far from Zalmi; everyone had their own method, and the Pakistan cricket team needed all-rounders.
Pakistan is getting good fast bowlers, and Balochistan needs to be given importance; Balochistan has the best talent, and the efforts of the Corps Commander and Chief Minister Balochistan to make the exhibition match a success is appreciable. May Allah have mercy on this country. Made of great sacrifices
Now is the time for development; if we want to move the country forward, responsible people have to work, we have to separate politics from cricket, and every organization has to take strong decisions to move the country forward.
