Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur will meet with the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Cricket Committee on July 27 to discuss about the team’s performance over the past three years and his future.

According to cricketpakistan.com.pk, Cricket Committee chairman Wasim Khan, who is also the board’s managing director, and members Wasim Akram, Misbah-ul-Haq and Urooj Mumtaz will speak to Arthur.

During the meeting, Arthur will also present a report on how the team have done since he took up the role in 2016 and on their World Cup campaign.

Following the meeting, the committee will make its recommendations to PCB chairman Ehsan Mani, who will ultimately decide Arthur’s fate.

Pakistan have achieved a lot during Arthur’s tenure as they won the Champions Trophy in 2017 and are currently at the summit of the Twenty20 team rankings.

However, they missed out on qualifying for the semi-finals at the World Cup.

Despite getting off to a rocky start, the men in green won their last four group stage games. But, it was not enough to get them into the last four as New Zealand finished with a better net run rate than them.

It is understood that the committee will hold similar meetings with captain Sarfraz Ahmed and a host of other people involved with the national team in the near future.
