Pakistan team's foreign coaches, including Mickey Arthur, Grant Bradburn and Andrew Puttick, have submitted their resignations from their roles in the national team and the cricket board. This comes after the resignation of bowling coach Morne Morkel immediately after the 2023 ODI World Cup.
It is noteworthy that after Pakistan's poor performance in the 2023 ODI World Cup, every aspect from the board to the management was criticized. Following this, changes were introduced within the Pakistan team. Additionally, following the 50-over World Cup in India, all three foreign coaches were reassigned to the National Cricket Academy as part of a restructuring move.
Along with these changes, bowling coach Morne Morkel, who was with the Pakistan team during the World Cup in India, resigned immediately after the tournament, leading to the team's inability to take it to the knockout stage. After this, PCB Chairman Zaka Ashraf sent him to the National Cricket Academy. All three coaches rejected it, took leave and returned home. Notably, Morkel resigned immediately after the World Cup.
According to media reports, the Pakistan Cricket Board had discussed with these three coaches before taking the decision to resign. Under the contract, if the PCB had dismissed him, he would have had to pay six months' salary.
