The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has sent its former Director of Cricket Team Mickey Arthur and Head Coach Grant Bradburn on leave, reported 24NewsHd TV channel Wednesday.

According to sources, the two coaches, who were sacked after the World Cup debacle, have gone abroad and their future with the PCB is in doubt.

Sources also revealed that batting coach Andrew Puttick has left for South Africa and has not been given any new role by the board.

The PCB had earlier instructed the foreign coaching staff to work at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) until further notice.

However, it seems that the board has no plans to retain them in any capacity.

The only foreign coaches who are currently with the national team are conditioning coach Derricks Simon and physiotherapist Cliff Deacon, as confirmed by the PCB.

The PCB has already appointed Muhammad Hafeez as Director Pakistan Cricket team in place of Arthur. He has also been given additional role as head coach of the team during their tour to Australia and New Zealand.

The PCB has also appointed Umar Gul and Saeed Ajmal as Pakistan’s bowling coaches.
