Karachi: Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shaharyar Khan has dismissed suggestions that it has made a mistake by hiring South African Mickey Arthur, who had levelled match fixing allegations against the Pakistani players some years back, as head coach of the national team.
"Look Mickey Arthur has already clarified to us about that statement he made some years ago. So it is a dead issue now.
"He was coach with the Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League, so he knows the players well. He should be successful in his assignment," Khan told the Express newspaper.
