Everyone was hoping that India wins the match against England making it easier for Pakistan to go to the semi-finals of the World Cup. But the opposite happened India lost and now there are more hardships in the way of winning.
Arthur said he was following the match and he was disappointed that India lost the match just because that would have given Pakistan a chance in the game. He said we cannot control how India played. The destiny was in their hands. Another hope for Pakistan is the match between England and New Zealand. If New Zealand wins the match against England then, Pakistan can get to the semi-finals by beating Bangladesh.
Pakistan had a disastrous defeat against West Indies that still haunts Arthur. Pakistan did not have a good start to the world cup. The team’s head coach wishes that his team could have played from the start but that didn’t happen and it hurts him. Pakistan had three consecutive victories against South Africa, New Zealand and Afghanistan but lost from India and Australia. Arthur wants the team to have the World Cup and he is desperately waiting for it.
