    Mickey Arthur poses with Shahid Afridi ahead of PSL

    Pakistan and Karachi Kings’ head coach, Mickey Arthur revealed that his stint with the Pakistan Super League’s franchise triggered his fascination with Pakistan cricket that helped him eventually to accept the coaching job offered by the Pakistan Cricket Board.

    “I worked with Karachi Kings and that sort of triggered my fascination little bit for Pakistan cricket and then when the job came up, we chatted about it, it was because I had worked with Karachi Kings that I eventually got attracted to it,” Mickey Arthur told ARY News.

    Karachi Kings’ fans are hoping that Mickey Arthur will take their team to PSL victory this time in a similar fashion as he steered Pakistan team to Champions Trophy triumph last year.

    “There will be no better satisfaction for me at the minute than going to Karachi for the final with the Karachi Kings, it will be fantastic,” he expressed.

    Arthur is delighted to have a seasoned cricketer like Shahid Afridi in his ranks to can groom young cricketers in the squad with his experience.

    “Shahid Afridi is a fantastic cricketer, he will be imparting his knowledge to all these young players that we have got, which is amazing. It will be a great opportunity for the youngsters,” he stated. “I think Imad (Wasim) can learn a bit from Shahid as well, I am really excited to have him aboard and to have him with us.”

    Talking about the young talent coming in through PSL, Arthur told he hopes to get at least three players before heading to the World Cup 2019.

    “We know all about our main players but we are looking for three positions to finish off our World Cup squad. I am hoping that the PSL throws those out, PSL has given us Fakhar Zaman and Shadab Khan last year, the year before it gave us Hasan Ali,” he said.

    “I am hoping that there are one or two players that come through for us in the PSL and they can fill the gaps that we are looking for in the Pakistan team,” he mentioned.

    “Working with Mushtaq Ahmed Kalhoro, Mohammad Taha or Hasan Mohsin in the nets allows myself and the support staff to make them better cricketers as well, so when they go back to the domestic cricket, they are far better and more enriched with this experience, so that is key,” he added.

    Mickey has clearly stated 3 positions are in doubt.

    Fakhar, Babar, Haris, Sarfraz, Shadab, Amir, Hassan are the core players that have there spots cemented.

    It’s either:


    Now it becomes extremely exciting because Shinwari and Junaid come in for Rumman and Mickey will back Faheem and even if Faheem doesn’t perform Yamin is there.

    So it’s the most exciting thing I have ever heard.


    Will be kicked out if Sahibzada, Talat, Umar Amin, Chotu Akmal, Shezzy, Maqsood or Saad Ali perform well in the PSL, exciting times ahead.

    Thank you so much Mickey, no amount of praise can highlight your service if you manage to kick these 3 out.
