Mickey Arthur Criticizes Zaka Ashraf
ESPNCricinfo while narrating Mickey’s side of the story quoted him as saying, “At the end of the World Cup we went back to Lahore. We had planned the whole Australian tour, so much so that we had thought about teams and combinations. We arrived in Pakistan and there was silence initially.
“And then Zaka wanted a review meeting of the World Cup. We went to that, I did a presentation…There was a recess, and we were starting a camp two days later. I was still on the balcony organizing with Usman Wahla what our logistics were going to be. And I wondered why there was such a break in this review. And then I got a little whisper in my ear that Zaka wanted to see me in a separate office in the museum at the HPC [High Performance Centre]. I went in, he asked me a whole lot of questions and then he said, ‘look, we’re going to remove the whole support staff and captain, basically, and that was it.'”
