After a difficult tour of South Africa where Pakistan lost the Test, ODI and T20 series, coach Mickey Arthur said he was disappointed his team didn’t win the white-ball series as they were as good as the hosts.
However, the coach was glad that speculation surrounding the leadership role of suspended and under-pressure captain Sarfraz Ahmed has ended after the Pakistan board named the keeper batsman as leader at the 2019 World Cup.
“The insecurities around Safi (captain Sarfraz Ahmed) has been put to bed now. And we’ve got clarity with that. I was part of that conversation with the chairman as well. He consulted me, as he did Inzamam (Ul Haq, chief selector) and a couple of others . We have made that decision because we are very comfortable with Sarfraz leading this team forward. So there is clarity, there is no more speculation. We know who is going to lead the team,” Arthur said.
