Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur expressed out his feeling of disappointment towards the team as they had lost the match against India in the ongoing world cup and told that he wanted to commit suicide.
It was on 16 June Pakistan had to face a disaster of 89 runs loss against arch-rival India at Old Trafford in Manchester. It was their seventh loss against India in all the editions of World Cups.
Pakistan was trying hard to be in the list of semi-finals after the match against India and won by 49 runs in the match against South Africa.
“Last Sunday I wanted to commit suicide, but it was, you know, it’s only one performance. It happens so quick. You lose a game; you lose another game; it’s a World Cup; media scrutiny; public expectation, and then you almost go into sort of survival mode. We’ve all been there,” – Arthur said.
Pakistan has five points from six games and is placed in the seventh position in the points table. They need to win all the three matches against New Zealand, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh to be in the semi-finals.
“We always keep telling our players, it’s one performance. Who is going to stimulate us today?” – Arthur added.
