Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne has admitted that having Mickey Arthur as head coach will be a “big advantage” for his side during the Test series against Pakistan, which begins on Wednesday in Rawalpindi.
Arthur was Pakistan’s head coach for three years and will be able to provide a lot of insight about the team.
“It’s a positive thing for us. It’s a big advantage for us,” Karunaratne was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo. “Mickey was very close to the Pakistan team for the last three years, he knows each and everyone closely, even the batters and bowlers, and how the team is going to get prepared. But whatever we get we have to do the things right.”
