ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Cricket team Coach Mickey Arthur has placed two conditions for the young aspirants of joining the national squad.

*The newbies can get the chance of getting selected too but only after fulfilling two demands of Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur.*

“What I would like the new players to be able to do are two things that will get them to play for Pakistan. They cannot be good in just one discipline so if you are a bowler, you have got to be fielding properly,” said Arthur, quoted *PakPassion*.

“Similarly, if you are a batsman, you have to be good in the field as well. That is how we win games. So, players that aren’t good in the field will have to battle very hard to get into the team as they won’t fit into the brand of cricket we are looking for,” the national cricket team coach added.

Arthur would be seen coaching the franchise Karachi Kings, in the upcoming third edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL). The coach was excited to work with youngsters, and was hopeful to pick a bunch of players, which can represent Pakistan internationally.

Meanwhile, the third edition of the much-awaited T20 tournament will commence from February 22, with a kickoff match between reigning champions Peshawar Zalmi and debutants Multan Sultans.
