Mickey Arthur set to join Pakistan camp in the first week of June

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s newly appointed Head Coach Mickey Arthur will join the national side in the first week of June.


After a chaotic selection procedure that attracted controversies, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) finalised the 48-year-old to be the right fit for the job earlier this month.

A PCB official told that Arthur will join the team on 4th or 5th of June. “Finally the wait is over and Mickey will be joining the players,” he said.

Arthur, who coached Karachi Kings in the inaugural Pakistan Super League (PSL) earlier this year, replaces former Pakistan quick Waqar Younis, who relinquished the post after Pakistan’s deplorable run in the Asia Cup T20 and ICC World T20.

The national side will take part in the week-long training camp scheduled to begin from today. The final squad for the tour of England will be finalised after the skill camp on June 6.

Pakistan is scheduled to take on the Britons in four Tests, five One-Day Internationals, and a T20 International starting from July 14.
