Pak coach Mickey Arthur wanted to commit suicide after India loss!
For the seventh time in the history of World Cup, Pakistan were defeated by India; and the 89-run loss in Manchester on June 16 was the biggest of margins ever.
After more than a week till the bruising defeat, Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur came out in public to state that he wanted to commit suicide after the embarrassing defeat and backlashes from fans.
Following Pakistan’s last win in the competition that forced South Africa to make an early exit from the World Cup, Arthur turned up for the post-match press conference.
He slammed the shrill critics for targeting the team and revealed how badly it can affect.
“It happens so quickly, you lose a game, you lose another game, it’s a World Cup, the media scrutiny, public expectations, and then, you almost go into survival mode. I mean, we’ve all been there. Last Sunday, I wanted to commit suicide,”
“I just think the guys were burnt last week (after the India match). The guys were incredibly hurt by media, by public, by social media, and hopefully we got a proper reaction from them today that can just shut some people up for a little while,” said the coach.
The defeat against India sparked immense fire among Pakistani fans. In messages and videos shared on social media, fans were seen cursing and demanding better performances from their team. Some of them even ended up body shamming of captain Sarfraz Ahmed.
Pakistan will face New Zealand on June 26. In their remaining two matches they will face Afghanistan and Bangladesh on June 29 and July 5 respectively.
