Mickey Arthur’s Appointment a Slap on Pakistan’s Cricket System: Misbah

Former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq has criticized the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for appointing Mickey Arthur as the online head coach of the national team.

Speaking to ESPNcricinfo, Misbah said the move is a slap on the country’s entire cricket system as it has failed to find a high-profile full-time coach.

“It’s a shame that the best people don’t want to come and we insist on keeping someone who is looking at Pakistan as a second option,” Misbah-ul-Haq said.

Blaming the cricket system, Misbah said that by disrespecting and defaming its cricketers, the system has become so weak that anyone can exploit it.

Misbah added that current and former cricketers do not respect each other, which damages the reputation and value of cricket and gives the impression that they are incompetent.

The former captain said that it has become a norm for cricketers to insult others on social media, which has created a negative impression among fans.

The 48-year-old player also slammed the PCB management, saying that it has always favored and supported foreign coaches while disrespecting and disrespecting the locals.

The former head coach added, “They are fond of having overseas coaches because they think the locals can be easily politicized and are incompetent.”
