The Pakistan Cricket Board on Friday lashed away allegations concerning ‘angry behavior’ from Head Coach Mickey Arthur in the Tests between Pakistan and South Africa.
In a presser, the Pakistan team management, led by Manager Talat Ali, has strongly refuted the baseless allegations that were leveled against Arthur on his supposed ‘angry behaviour’ at the end of Day Two of the ongoing Test match against South Africa in Centurion.
As per the norm, Mickey held a debriefing meeting at the end of the day’s play which was held in a cordial atmosphere with inputs from team members and management as is the usual practice.
“Any speculation about coach’s angry behaviour towards the players is grossly exaggerated. The head coach, team management, captain and all team members are totally united with a singular aim of producing positive results,” the Board maintained.
The team manager and rest of the management hopes that media would refrain from speculating on the matter, it added.
Mickey Arthur, coach of Pakistan cricket team, had reportedly lost his cool in the dressing room and bashed captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and other batsmen, including Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq after their dismal performance against South Africa at Centurion on Thursday.
