A source has revealed that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is highly impressed with Andy Flower’s coaching pedigree and is interested in him taking over as the national team’s head coach.
Flower was highly successful during his time as England’s head coach as the team won the 2010 World Twenty20, triumphed in a Test series in India for the first time in 28 years and won the Ashes 3-0 on home soil.
With Arthur’s contract having ended after the World Cup, there has been a lot of speculation about what the future holds for him.
It is known that Arthur will meet with the PCB’s Cricket Committee on July 27 to discuss about the team’s performance over the past three years and his future.
It is understood that 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.
“The PCB is impressed with the work done by Flower as a coach and then at the England Cricket Board’s academy behind the scenes to build a strong ODI squad which went on to win the World Cup,” the source was quoted as saying by firstpost.com.
