LAHORE – Nation’s top cricketers have begun preparing for life under the upcoming regime set to be headed once again by Mickey Arthur, who is one the verge of being appointed the cricket team’s online coach.
In becoming the first ever web coach of the national cricket team, Arthur’s tenure is set to be marked by an increase in remote working for the squad, sources have confirmed.
“National cricketers, from the top tier to emerging talents, have all begun working from home in anticipation of the workload ahead,” revealed a source within the national cricket team.
Sources within the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have also confirmed that the board plans on working under a hybrid system for the time being.
“[PCB Chairman] Mr Najam Sethi has been keenly following hybrid regimes, both past and present, and thought best to introduce all its kinds in the national cricket team as well,” a PCB official told The Dependent.
“The hybrid systems include a merger of totalitarian and democratic powers in governance, and merger of in-person and work-from-home models in practice,” the source added.
Sources have also reiterated that a hybrid Pakistan Super League is set to be planned this year, with the aim to go completely digital by 2025.
