Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif believes that Mickey Arthur should continue on as head coach.
Arthur’s current contract came to an end after the recent World Cup, where Pakistan failed to qualify for the semi-finals.
The men in green won five out of the nine matches they played, which came against England, South Africa, New Zealand, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
However, they fell agonisingly short of booking their spot in the last four as New Zealand had a better net run rate than them.
With Pakistan not being able to reach the semi-finals, there has been a lot of speculation surrounding Arthur’s future, with most reports stating that he will be sacked.
However, Latif feels that Pakistan should avoid making too many major changes since the World Twenty20 will be next in Australia in October 2020.
“As far as changes in the Pakistan team [are] concerned after the World Cup, I think the PCB should avoid major changes in the team and staff,” Latif told The Nation. “Now the World T20 is [over a year] away. The PCB must have noticed flaws and grey areas. They should address the shortcomings and bring [in a] few players and replace non-performers. Mickey Arthur should also be given the go ahead to help Pakistan in the rebuilding process.”
