Misbah ul Haq, a former head coach of Pakistan, called Mickey Aurther’s appointment as an online coach “a slap on Pakistan cricket” and criticized the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Misbah told ESPNcricinfo, “It’s a slap on our cricket system that we can’t find a high-profile full-time coach.
Following the arrival of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) president Najam Sethi, Arthur is likely to return to Pakistan as the country’s team director. Misbah accused former Pakistani athletes of undermining the system’s legitimacy and forcing PCB to look outside the country for coaching positions.
“It’s unfortunate that the greatest candidates are not interested in coming, and we insist on having someone who is considering Pakistan as a backup plan.
