Mickey Arthur Backs the Babar Azam Led Side To Win The ICC World Cup
While talking to Geo News about his return to the Pakistan cricket, Mickey said, “The first thing I said was I left them as young, very talented boys, some very very talented players but now when I look around the room those young boys are grown into men. They all have wives — most of them — and they had developed nice big egos and they have started backing themselves. So that was my first interaction with them but it was so good to see them. They were very happy to see me and I was very happy to see them I’ve got great relationships with them”.
Talking about Pakistan’s chances in the upcoming world cup Mickey said, “I firmly believe that with the talent we have at our disposal — this is a team that can win the World Cup. I really do. I think the talent that Pakistan has is fantastic and I’m really excited to see how far they can go. But I’m also really excited to be able to play a role in those players’ development”.
