Men’s ODI World Cup: Coach Arthur wants Babar to remain as captain and attributes Pakistan’s lackluster performance to inconsistency

<p>The Pakistani team’s poor performance in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 was caused by general inconsistency as well as weaknesses in the batting and bowling units.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-278544″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-mens-odi-world-cup-coach-arthur-wants-babar-to-remain-as-captain-and-attributes-pa.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com mens odi world cup coach arthur wants babar to remain as captain and attributes pa” width=”914″ height=”608″ title=”Men's ODI World Cup: Coach Arthur wants Babar to remain as captain and attributes Pakistan's lackluster performance to inconsistency 6″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-mens-odi-world-cup-coach-arthur-wants-babar-to-remain-as-captain-and-attributes-pa.jpg 275w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-mens-odi-world-cup-coach-arthur-wants-babar-to-remain-as-captain-and-attributes-pa-150×100.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 914px) 100vw, 914px” /></p>
<p>Pakistan began a run of four consecutive defeats with a disastrous loss to their bitter rivals, India. Despite fighting back to be in the semifinals, they ultimately finished fifth in the tournament after losing to England by 93 runs to end their season.</p>
<p>Following the loss to England, when their bowlers gave up more than 70 runs in their 10 overs, and they surrendered 337/9 in 50 overs. Only Agha Salman scored a half-century as their batters could only muster 244 before going out of the game in 43.3 overs.</p>
<p>Mickey Arthur, the director of cricket for Pakistan, provided a candid and straightforward analysis of the reasons for his team’s exit from the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 before the semifinals.</p>
<p>We didn’t play our greatest game here, in my opinion. The top four teams in the tournament, in my opinion, are now participating in the semifinals. We’ve been trying to convey the idea that we’re behind the eight ball, and I believe that’s what we’ve seen. At the news conference held here on Saturday night after the game, Arthur said, “We need to step up our game.”</p>
<p>Arthur conducted a thorough analysis of the squad and prepared a list of several changes that must be addressed if the group is to remain successful in the future.</p>
<p>“I believe we miss Naseem Shah, but we got him in our bowling assault. However, our bowling assault is strong if you have Naseem Shah. We need to develop into a 330–350 batting unit, according to Arthur.</p>
<p>“The teams in the semifinal are the ones that are doing it and doing it regularly. Furthermore, I don’t believe we’ve done it often enough. We can’t depend just on one or two players, therefore we do that when Fakhar Zaman leaves the game,” he said.</p>
<p>They already know where they need to go from here, he continued, and the planning has begun.</p>
<p>“We are aware of the precise location we must go. We must be aware of what has to be done. Planning has already begun.</p>
<p>But in the end, we’re only in charge of what we can. The way we get our guys ready is something we can manage. The message that we provide to our gamers is under our control. Nothing else is within our control. In that sense, what will be will be. However, we must continue to be dependable,” he said.</p>
<p>In addition, the South African fully backed team captain Babar Azam in the face of requests for his dismissal after the squad’s appalling performance.</p>
<p>Arthur said that Pakistan must retain the status quo in terms of leadership and that a stable atmosphere is essential for future success.</p>
<p>We were a really close-knit group. Babar and I are really close, therefore I support him. It is necessary to accompany this young man on his voyage. He must be instructed on the ropes. He never stops learning new things.</p>
<p>We are aware of his exceptional batsmanship. With his leadership, he gains knowledge every day. He needs time to mature, and we need to give it to him. And you make errors in the process of doing it.</p>
<p>As a group, we’ve made a lot of errors this World Cup, but if this group matures and learns from it, we’ve got the foundation of a very, very strong side, he said. “Mistakes are not a crime as long as you learn from them.”</p>
