Pakistan legend Abdul Qadir is adamant that head coach Mickey Arthur “has ruined Pakistan cricket”.
Abdul Qadir’s statement comes after Pakistan cricket team failed to book their spot in the semi final of the ICC World Cup 2019.
Qadir also lambasted Mickey Arthure for overlooking players like Umar Akmal, Ahmed Shehzad and former skipper Salman Butt.
All three players have been performing well in domestic cricket, but none of them were taken into World Cup squad, where the men in green failed to reach the semi final as New Zealand had a better run rate.
“Mickey Arthur has ruined Pakistan cricket,” Qadir told cricketpakistan.com.pk. “He dropped the likes of Ahmed Shehzad, Sami Aslam, Salman Butt, Umar Akmal, Sohail Khan and many others. These were the players [that] had the experience and performances under their belt to carry Pakistan forward.
“Even if there were disciplinary issues with these players, it’s the PCB’s responsibility to form a code of conduct and warn these players in order to avoid such incidents from happening in the future,” Qadir added.
