Pakistan’s coach Mickey Arthur admitted that he was disappointed with India’s approach towards the game against the hosts in an important clash at Edgbaston. India’s win could have raised Pakistan’s chances of qualifying for the semi-finals; however, their hopes were shattered as the Men in Blue faced their first defeat in the tournament by 31 runs.

Several questions were raised on the lower batsmen of the Indian cricket team for their lack of positive intent in the game. The team were unable to gain momentum from the very start of the innings by losing an early wicket and their inability to register decent runs in the first 10 overs of the game. The bowling department suffered as well as India failed to get early breakthrough against the English openers.

Pakistan’s coach however said that, “How they played, again that’s the issue which we can’t control.” He added that he was following the game intently and was disappointed that India didn’t get up against the hosts because that would have opened the door for Pakistan.

He also mentioned that now all they want is to get to Friday with a real opportunity and have the destiny in their own hands. He said, “I just hope New Zealand get it done for us.”

England will encounter the Black Caps tomorrow i.e. 3rd July at Riverside Ground whilst Pakistan will face Bangladesh on Friday, 5th July at Lord’s cricket ground.
