Mickey Arthur, the Pakistani team’s director, will travel to India by September 30 for the 2023 Cricket World Cup. The support personnel for the senior men’s team for the Cricket World Cup, which will take place in India from October 5 to November 19, was confirmed by the Pakistan Cricket Board on Saturday, September 23. According to the board, director Mickey Arthur is scheduled to arrive in India by September 30.

The entire Asia Cup 2023 was played without Mickey Arthur, who had been named the men’s senior squad’s director, being physically present with the team. Notably, Arthur has played a crucial role in the team’s decision-making, particularly with regard to the selection of the World Cup roster. Notably, Arthur has remained involved as the head coach of the Derbyshire county championship after serving as the team’s head coach from 2016 to 2019.

At the World Cup in India, Grant Bradburn will serve as the team’s head coach, but former South Africa pacer Morne Morkel will still go with the group as their bowling coach.

The PCB also announced that the team led by Babar Azam will leave for India on Wednesday morning, two days before their opening exhibition game in Hyderabad. On October 3, Pakistan will face New Zealand in their first exhibition game and Australia in their second. On October 6 in Hyderabad, Pakistan will play its opening World Cup 2023 match against the Netherlands.

Pakistan’s performance at the Asia Cup was dismal as Babar’s team was unable to advance past the Super Fours stage after losing to Sri Lanka and India.

Prior to the World Cup, Pakistan was dealt a severe blow when its promising bowler Naseem Shah was forced to withdraw from the competition owing to an injury he sustained at the Asia Cup.

Naseem sustained a shoulder injury while playing India in an Asia Cup game. The 20-year-old cricket player has been advised to have surgery, and recovery time is anticipated to be between three and four months. The team’s makeup has significantly changed as a result of this unanticipated turn of events.
