The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has extended national team head coach Mickey Arthur's contract till the 2019 World Cup.

As media reports suggest, the PCB is satisfied with the performance of Arthur since he guided the Sarfraz Ahmed-led side to their maiden Champions Trophy title in England after defeating arch-rivals India in the finals.

Confirming the news, the PCB official admitted that Arthur could prove to be the best coaching option following the Champions Trophy victory.

The South African coach, who was initially contracted in May 2016 to serve for up to two years, also reportedly wants the contracts of the rest of the support staff to be extended so that the team could prepare well for the World Cup.

It should be noted that batting coach Grant Flower has been associated with the team since 2014, while bowling coach Azhar Mahmood and fielding coach Steve Rixon were roped in the role soon after Arthur's appointment.
