Pakistan Cricket News: Pakistan's former batter Haroon Rasheed has been appointed as the chief selector of the national selection committee.
Pakistan Cricket Board underwent a series of changes earlier this month as Ramiz Raja was sacked as the chairman, with Najam Sethi taking over the role.
Arthur has accepted the offer kept forward by newly appointed Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi and is likely to take up the role soon.
The source added that Babar Azam would continue to lead Pakistan in limited overs and he would be removed from Test captaincy in July of next year.
The news comes just a day after Pakistan's embarrassing series whitewash at home at the hands of England.
Azhar Ali revealed that the Karachi Test will be his last red-ball assignment for the Asian outfit in a presser on Friday.
Over 500 players took part in the draft. Teams had to pick from the Platinum, Diamond, Gold, Silver, Emerging, and Supplementary categories.
The mercurial pacer missed Pakistan's latest assignment against Ireland due to a shoulder injury.
A shoulder injury kept Naseem out of the second Test in Multan on Monday, and the 19-year-old has still not fully recovered.
The pitch used for the first Test between Pakistan and Australia in March was also rated as below average.
