Profile

Mickey Arthur was the type of player who commanded universal respect through his dedication and always showed the attributes of being a good coach. He managed 6557 runs playing for Free State, Griqualand West and South Africa A before hanging up his boots in 2001. He coached Griquas in the domestic competition before taking over the Eastern Cape side in 2003, and guiding them to the finals of the Standard Bank Pro20 series in the last two seasons. He was a slightly surprising choice to take over as the national coach in May 2005, succeeding Ray Jennings.
