Major changes expected in Pakistan cricket team’s management

LONDON: The Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Governing Board is expected to decide on major changes to the team’s management during its meeting scheduled for Wednesday, sources informed Geo News.

Geo News has learnt that PCB will be looking to let go of several members of the management including coaches and selectors. Among those expected to be sent packing is Coach Mickey Arthur, whose contract will not be renewed by the PCB. Team manager Talat Ali, bowling coach Azhar Mahmood and the entire selection committee including Inzamam-ul-Haq can also be dismissed. 

Managing Director PCB Wasim Khan has cut short his foreign visit and will be attending the Governing Board meeting in Lahore tomorrow. Apart from decisions on team management, the board will also discuss the new domestic cricket structure.

Khan who is overseeing all cricket matters for the board has started consultations over changes to the management.

According to sources, the PCB’s Governing Board meets every three months and on Wednesday is expected to discuss the performance of the Pakistan cricket team at the World Cup.

Sources within the PCB maintain that no decisions will be made in haste following the loss to India. After the World Cup, the performance of the captain, selectors and coaches will be evaluated. Emphasis will be placed on the report on the World Cup prepared by team manager Talat Ali. Coach Arthur will also present his report to the PCB on the team’s performance after the tournament concludes.
