Pakistan’s head coach, Mickey Arthur, has defended captain Babar Azam and the team management against criticism following their fourth consecutive loss in the One-Day International Cricket World Cup. Pakistan’s hopes of reaching the semi-finals were dented when they lost to South Africa by one wicket. This followed defeats against India, Australia, and Afghanistan. Despite starting the tournament as favorites, Pakistan now faces the possibility of an early exit. However, Arthur supported Azam and the management, stating that it was unfair to start a “witch hunt” against them. He highlighted the effort and dedication shown by the players and coaching staff. Pakistan put up a respectable score of 270 against South Africa, but ultimately lost by a single wicket. Arthur expressed pride in the team’s determination and praised their performance with both bat and ball. He emphasized the difference between the loss against Afghanistan, where Pakistan was average in all departments, and the match against South Africa, where they fought until the end.
