Mickey Arthur Career

Arthur scored 6,557 runs playing for Orange Free State, Griqualand West and South Africa A before retiring in 2001.

Arthur began his coaching career by coaching Griqualand West cricket team in the domestic competition before taking over the Eastern Cape side in 2003. In his last two series in charge Arthur managed to guide them to the finals of the Standard Bank Pro20 Series. He was a surprising choice to take over as the national coach in May 2005, succeeding Ray Jennings.

Arthur was the coach of the Western Warriors and later coached the Australian cricket team. During the 2013 Australian tour of India, Arthur was criticised for his role in the Homeworkgate scandal, where he required members of the team to complete homework. He continued to coach the team until the Champions Trophy-2013 in England, where Australia crashed out in the group stages. As a pre-emptive measure ahead of the upcoming Ashes series in England, Mickey Arthur was sacked and replaced by Darren Lehmann. In August 2013, Arthur was appointed as the head coach and director of cricket at Christ Church Grammar School, an Anglican all-boys’ school in Perth, Western Australia. In 2016, Arthur became a naturalised Australian citizen.
