Mickey Arthur has once again reiterated his desire to continue on as Pakistan’s head coach.
Arthur’s comments come after Pakistan were eliminated from the World Cup on Friday.
The men in green beat Bangladesh by 94 runs at Lord’s, but it was not enough to get them into the semi-finals as they had to triumph by over 300 runs.
Arthur’s current contract will expire once the World Cup concludes later this month, and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has confirmed that it will hold a review around that time.
However, Arthur is hoping that his contract is extended as he said he loves everything about Pakistan and wants to see international cricket return to the country.
“I’m very, very passionate about these boys in the dressing room. I’m very passionate about cricket, and I’m very passionate about Pakistan,” Arthur was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “I just want to see Pakistan get to where they need to be.
“I would love to see cricket come back to Pakistan because I think the population, the people need it. The people would love it. The colour, the emotion would be second to none. I love every minute, and I have loved every minute of coaching this Pakistan cricket team.”
