The Pakistan Cricket Board denied any rift between the players and head coach Mickey Arthuer, a day after a Pakistani news channel claimed that chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq had gone to England to bring peace between the two warring parties. 

The news channel also stated that some players had complained to the PCB about Arthur's behaviour and his domination in the dressing room. It also claimed that a few players were not on talking terms with Arthur, but PCB has denied all such rumours. The PCB stated that Inzy was always going to travel to England during the World Cup, but his departure was delayed due to some official procedures. 

Interestingly, in Pakistan cricket, the selection committee picks the touring squad, and then a touring selection committee, the captain, coach and the manager decide the playing XI. 

However, many former players have criticized Inzamam's presence in England, and his interference in the team matters has not gone down well with former players from the country. 

An official, however, expressed frustration at the many rumours about the team that are being circulated after the Pakistani side lost convincingly to India earlier. 

“It is sad because our team needs all the support it can get right now. That is why the board Chairman called up captain Sarfaraz (Ahmed) and encouraged him. Every time we do badly, such stories and speculations come out. When Pakistan won against England, there was no mention of rifts and problems and it has now started,” said the official.
