Former Pakistan head coach, Mickey Arthur has responded to the allegations leveled by the senior cricketer, Mohammad Hafeez.
Arthur has hit back at Hafeez, saying he only liked those players who he thought could win matches for Pakistan instead of those who never got out of their comfort zones thinking Pakistan cricket owed them.
All I will say is that I liked players who could win games for Pakistan and were professional in all they did. I disliked players that sat in their comfort zones and felt Pakistan cricket owed them something.
The 39-year-old cricketer had earlier accused the South African had double-standards and promoted favoritism in the team selection.
I think Mickey Arthur was the most powerful coach in Pakistan’s cricket history. Everything went according to what he wanted. I will admit that there were double standards and favoritism while he was coaching the side.
Arthur served as the head coach of the Pakistan cricket team from 6th May 2016 to 7th August 2019. In his tenure, Pakistan won the Champions Trophy 2017 and became the number one T20I team.
