KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is likely to extend the contract of men’s cricket team head coach Mickey Arthur till ICC T20 Cricket World Cup 2020, which will kick-off from October 18, 2020 in Australia.

According to some reliable sources, the board is not sure about taking any decision yet as the cricket committee headed by its Managing Director (MD) Wasim Khan will overview the performance of players and coaches in detail later this month.

On the other hand, the outgoing PCB chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq could be the next batting consultant of the team as the board reportedly is not satisfied with the performance of batting coach, Grant Flower, who has been with the team since the last World Cup.

Meanwhile, the PCB has already asked head coach Mickey Arthur to apply afresh if he wants to continue his job with the national cricket team.

Mickey Arthur, whose 3-year contract ended with the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, met with PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani and MD Wasim Khan in London after World Cup 2019 and expressed his desire to continue as the coach.
