Suicide Was an Option for Arthur After India Defeat

Arthur said he was in a bad place after their defeat against India

Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur said he wanted to commit suicide after their 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup defeat against India last June 16. The Men in Blue won by 89 runs whereas the Shaheens scored 212 with 6 in 40 overs.

“Last Sunday I wanted to commit suicide,” said Arthur. “It happens so quick. You lose a game, (then) you lose another game. It’s a World Cup, (there is) media scrutiny, public expectation, and then you almost go into sort of (a) survival mode. We’ve all been there.”

However, Arthur's World Cup spirit seemed better after their match last Sunday against South Africa where they won by 49 runs.

“We always keep telling our players, it’s one performance. Who is going to stimulate us today?” stated Arthur.

Pakistan will be playing next against New Zealand tomorrow at Edgbaston Cricket Grounds. The Shaheens currently have +120 odds to win the game while the Kiwis have -141 odds.
