Internet explodes with memes over report of Mickey Arthur’s appointment as “online coach” of Pakistan Cricket Team

Predicting scenes of the online coaching and the indifference of Pakistan players during this coaching was a common theme across most of the memes.

On Monday, January 30, reports emerged that Pakistan is in the process of finalising Mickey Arthur as their cricket team’s ‘online coach’. While the story can not be confirmed as yet, the very idea of an online coach baffled everyone, including the chairman of selectors, Shahid Afridi.

Mickey Arthur was previously the coach of the Pakistan team from 2016 to 2019. He is currently serving as the head coach of Derbyshire county in England. With his reluctance to leave Derbyshire, and Pakistan’s keenness to appoint him as the coach, reports emerged that he may take up the position as an online coach. The report sparked off a meme fest online as cricket fans couldn’t believe a cricket board would seriously consider the idea.

Twitter user Allah Baksh tried to predict the future of the online meetings conducted by Mickey Arthur.

Another Twitter user by the name of Hussaina used a famous scene from the popular sitcom ‘The Big Bang Theory’ to predict how this online coaching would go.

Usama used the meme of the ‘disappointed Pakistani fan’ to say how Mickey Arthur would feel while trying to coach the Pakistan team online.

Predicting scenes of the online coaching, and indifference of Pakistan players was a common theme across most of the memes.

Some users predicted what will happen if there is a network error during the online coaching.

While it remains to be seen if this concept of ‘online coach’ actually comes to fruition or not, internet is definitely having a lot of fun around it.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has undergone a lot of changes recently, following the change of government, as is the norm in Pakistan. Former test cricketer Ramiz Raja has been removed as the chairman of the board and replaced by journalist Najam Sethi. The selection panel has been changed as well, and now they are searching for a new coach, or maybe just an ‘online coach’.
