Mickey Arthur Speaks Out Against Misbah-ul-Haq & Wasim Akram

Former Pakistan cricket team head coach Mickey Arthur claims that he was backstabbed by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Cricket Committee, which included Misbah-ul-Haq and Wasim Akram.

Expressing his disappointment over the way his tenure came to an end, Arthur said that he trusted the people who didn’t follow through for him.

I guess the only disappointment I have out of the whole lot is that there were some people I really trusted who ultimately didn’t follow through. I’m not talking about the hierarchy, I’m talking about people on the cricket committee that I did trust who sort of said one thing and ultimately did another. So that was the disappointing aspect of it.

Despite the differences, Arthur added that he believes Misbah will do well as Pakistan coach and has a lot of potential.

Those were guys I endorsed and guys I really enjoyed. As I say, they had a job to do and they decided it was in the best interests of Pakistan cricket to go with a fresh set of eyes. And it just happened to be that Misbah was on the committee that didn’t renew our contracts and becomes this heir-apparent. Ultimately Misbah will do a good job, Misbah is a good guy and Pakistan cricket made their decision. I was disappointed because I loved every second of that job.

  • Abdul RASHID Lateef is the best choice for the head coach and Chief Selector but he is from Karachi that’s why he is not selected. Misbah is A$$ kisser of zani imran that’s why he got the job.

  • It’s not about coaches Micky was good coach and good person. Our selection system is corrupt. Everybody in power seek own benefit, same was done by inzamam for immamulhaq. Change system, cricket will get better and coach will do rest and will make it in best way.

  • No one is to blame. Mr.. Arthur believed that during his time Pakistan cricket system started follow the systematic and rational approach but he actually forgets that it may bring another decade to bring the change the Imran Khan depicted. The only way to express our system is to say let’s hope for the best.
