All coaches of Pakistan team including Director Mickey Arthur being fired

Following a lackluster performance by the Green Shirts in the ICC World Cup 2023, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is considering significant changes in leadership. This includes the potential removal of team director Mickey Arthur, head coach Grant Bradburn, and batting coach Andrew Puttick.

Sources suggest that the PCB is leaning towards appointing local coaches to take charge of the national side. Zaka Ashraf, Chairman of the PCB Management Committee, is set to meet with captain Babar Azam and other team management members in the coming days.

This meeting is scheduled before Ashraf departs for India on November 17, where he will participate in an ICC meeting.

Reports indicate that during these discussions, Ashraf will closely examine Pakistan's performance in both the Asia Cup and the recently concluded World Cup. Despite being the 1992 champions, Pakistan fell short of making the semi-finals, concluding their campaign with a fifth defeat in nine matches against holders England.

Amidst the disappointing performance, there are speculations about Babar Azam contemplating stepping down from the captaincy, particularly in white-ball cricket.

The 29-year-old has sought advice on his future, consulting with former PCB chairman Ramiz Raja and other close confidants.
