Pakistan left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir has called Mickey Arthur the ‘best coach in the world’ in his birthday wishing tweet.

Amir’s comments came into being, when he was wishing Arthur, who is now Sri Lanka’s head coach. Arthur was Pakistan’s head coach from 2016 to 2019. Few months ago he has been left out from his designation after the men in green narrowly missed out on qualifying for the semi-finals during last year’s World Cup in 2019.
Arthur had been in charge of the team for three years now and many Pakistani believes he hardly developed the team. His exit came in the wake of rumors that he was eyeing the England coaching job once incumbent head coach Trevor Bayliss’ era ends.
Although Arthur’s tenure with the Pakistan side had been a mixed one. He was featuring several bumps but equally memorable achievement. The ICC Champions Trophy 2017 triumph in England and the rise to the top of the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings a position they hold to date has been possible for him.
Former Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur and Mohammad Amir had a good relationship between them. Once Arther has said that there ‘were no major rifts’ between him and left-arm pace bowler Mohammad Amir to explain how close they were.
Arthur, who is now Sri Lanka’s head coach, once said that he and Amir “had a very good working relationship. We had a very good working relationship and they were no major rifts between us, And he is a very talented player. It’s fun to work with him.”
After leaving Pakistan as the head coach, Mickey Arther is now the head coach of Sri Lanka.
