Reports: Mickey Arthur Thinking of Leaving PCB

Former Pakistan team director, Mickey Arthur, is reportedly considering parting ways with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), according to a report.


Arthur is expected to make an announcement regarding his decision after discussions with the PCB, sources revealed.

He previously served as Pakistan’s team director during the recent World Cup in India. However, due to the team’s disappointing performance, the PCB Management Committee relieved foreign coaches of their duties.

Following their dismissal, these coaches were directed to report to the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Consequently, bowling coach Morne Morkel resigned from his role after the World Cup.

In another development, batting coach Andrew Puttick departed from the PCB after securing a contract with the Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB).

Earlier today, Grant Bradburn, the former head coach, bid farewell to the PCB. Bradburn took over from Saqlain Mushtaq last year and oversaw the Test series against New Zealand and Sri Lanka, as well as the 50-over World Cup in India.

He is set to start a new role at Glamorgan next month, taking charge of the Welsh county across various formats.

Bradburn shared an update about his departure on X (formerly Twitter), expressing pride in his accomplishments and gratitude for working with exceptional players, coaches, and staff during his time with Pakistan cricket.

“Wishing the teams, staff, and everyone associated with Pakistan Cricket continued success and growth,” he added.
