Mickey Arthur destined to fail as Australian coach, says biographer

Sydney, Jan.10 : Former Australian cricket team coach Mickey Arthur's biographer, Neil Manthorp, believes the former was "destined to fail" in his job with Australia.


In a piece written for the new cricket journal Between Wickets, which outlines Arthur's coaching career in Australia since emigrating in 2010, Manthorp says he could never shake off perceptions of his coaching style, which was inherently South African.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Manthorp further opines that Arthur was not intransigent or inflexible, nor was he arrogant or uncommitted, but his fault lay in the fact that he perceived that he was being viewed as such by the Australians, and that eventually led to his axing in England last year just before the Ashes series got underway.
