Pakistan’s cricket board axed coach Mickey Arthur on Wednesday after a disappointing Cricket World Cup.

Arthur’s contract expired after last month’s World Cup, won by hosts England, and the South African had asked for a two-year extension.

But Pakistan Cricket Board chief Ehsan Mani said Arthur and his assistant coaches Grant Flower and Azhar Mahmood had all been shown the door.

Reports say Arthur has been shortlisted as the next England coach after Trevor Bayliss departs following the ongoing Ashes Test series.
