Mickey Arthur set to be Sri Lanka’s new Head Coach

"We are thankful to Sri Lanka Cricket for agreeing to send their team for the longer version of the game, which will contribute significantly in the PCB's efforts and drive for regular resumption of worldwide cricket, and help in its endeavours of attracting new audiences and younger generation", PCB Director Zakir Khan said in an official statement.

Mickey Arthur set to be Sri Lanka's new Head Coach but Consultant role on Pakistan tour. Pakistan had failed to make their way into the semifinal of the World Cup and thus Arthur's job was always in jeopardy.

"He had won the 2017 Champions Trophy with Pakistan, and had also taken Pakistan to the No. 1 spot in T20s".

Mickey Arthur likely to be appointed Sri Lanka head coach. Arthur has previously coached South Africa, Australia and Pakistan in the past.

Arthur is likely to arrive in Sri Lanka in this month to complete the contract procedure.

Forgetting basketball, and just focusing on athletic prowess, James is about as impressive of a specimen as has ever existed, in a highly athletic sport.

Subsequently, Arthur was replaced by Misbah-ul-Haq as the head coach of the Pakistan team. Chandika Hathurusingha was suspended after the team had faced severe criticism for their mundane performance in the World Cup 2019. However, Sri Lanka was clean swept by Australia in the T20I series.

After a span of six years, global cricket returned to Pakistan in 2015 when Zimbabwe toured the country for a day and 20 games.

"We are pleased to confirm our return visit to Pakistan since, based on our previous visit, we are comfortable and convinced that the conditions are adequate and conducive to the test cricket", he said.

Arthur's experience with the Sri Lankan team in Pakistan will be more beneficial in the sense he has already worked with the Pakistan team very recently and is aware of the techniques of Pak players and wickets. It is ironic, though, that it will be Sri Lanka that will help in reviving full-scale foreign tours to this country after the attack on its team a decade ago.
