Don’t believe the hype. Mickey Arthur isn’t a shoo-in to be the next coach of the West Indies.

That’s the word from Michael Muirhead, chief executive officer of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).

“There is absolutely no truth to that talk around the region that Mickey Arthur will be hired as the next coach,” Muirhead said by telephone from the board’s headquarters in Antigua and Barbuda yesterday.

“We did speak to him [Arthur] and many other coaches recently, because it was convenient to do so [during the Caribbean Premier League T20 tournament] but to say he will be the next coach is not true. We don’t know yet who will be the next coach.”
