Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani has confirmed that head coach Mickey Arthur did express an interest in continuing on as head coach.

Arthur is believed to have met with Mani and PCB managing director Wasim Khan earlier this week, where he told them that he wanted his contract to be extended.

Arthur’s current contract expires after the World Cup concludes on Sunday, but the PCB will be conducting a comprehensive review to decide whether to retain Arthur, chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq, captain Sarfraz Ahmed and a host of other people.

This comes after Pakistan failed to qualify for the World Cup semi-finals.

“Yes, Arthur showed his interest [to carry on his job] but I can’t say any word on this subject [until] the PCB cricket committee, which is going to start assessing the performance of the team management and others in a few days, completes its report,” Mani told Dawn.
