Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur believes captain Sarfraz Ahmed deserves a lot of credit for the way he kept his composure after the team’s loss to India.
Sarfraz was heavily criticised after Pakistan’s loss to their arch-rivals as it put them on the brink of elimination.
However, the men in green turned their campaign around and went on to beat South Africa, New Zealand, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
Despite this, they missed out on the World Cup semi-finals as New Zealand had a superior net run rate.
“I must say that I’d just like to credit the captain, Sarfraz,” Arthur was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “What he was exposed to after the Indian game was atrocious as a Pakistan cricket captain, as any captain of any cricket team, and the way he held his composure, the way he led from the front, the way his work ethic never, ever changed, the more determined he got through the tournament, I think he’s been an inspiration to that dressing room, and I think Sarfraz deserves a lot of credit for this as well.”
