Mikey Arthur's era; disappointing performances in Tests and ODIs
LAHORE: Pakistan's Test and ODI cricket suffered a catastrophe during the Mackey Arthur era, while the former head coach's greatest success came in the form of the Champions Trophy.
After the departure of former pacer Waqar Younis, Mackey Arthur was appointed head coach of the Pakistan team on May 6, 2016, he was selected by Ramiz Raja and Waseem Akram's committee. He was also honored to be the country's most successful captain in a long format. The Green Caps also occupied the World No.1 position. After the departure of Misbah-ul-Haq, the Pakistan Test team could not achieve much success.
Pakistan played 28 Test matches during the Mackey Arthur era, winning only 10 of them, defeating 17 and losing one match, the Pakistan team currently ranked seventh in the ICC World Rankings, followed by Mackey Arthur in One Day International. Pakistan won the Champions Trophy in coaching but the overall record was impressive.
The Green Shirts failed to reach the semi-finals at the World Cup, which led to the transformation of various officials, including the coaching staff. The Green Shirts won only 29 out of the 66 ODIs played during their tenure. The 3 matches did not prove fruitful, the team is currently in sixth position, Pakistan's T20I performance was good and under the leadership of Sarfraz Ahmed, the team occupied the first position in the world rankings which is still intact
