ICC World Cup 2019: Mickey Arthur reassures Pakistan will bounce back!
Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur has asserted that Pakistan can bounce back from the “shocking” start to the World Cup.
With the second-lowest total in the world cup, Pakistan was bowled out by West Indies with just 105 runs on board in a mere 21.4 overs at Trent Bridge on Friday.
While talking to the news agency Arthur said: “Yes, it was a shocking start, the players did not take the preparations into the middle”.
“But we will dust ourselves off and come back strong”, he further added.
Arthur said his team´s batting performance was all the more disappointing as they had expected to face short-pitched bowling and prepared accordingly.
“We knew that we were going to get short-pitched bowling and had prepared very well for it, so was disappointing to see us play like that because we were prepared”, said Pakistan coach.
It’s high that Pakistan team pull itself together, as they will be returning to Trent Bridge for their second World Cup game against tournament hosts England on Monday
