Mickey Arthur, Pakistan’s coach, openly acknowledges his intimate familiarity with Sri Lanka’s strengths and vulnerabilities. Having helmed Sri Lanka’s team for a span of two years, he now finds himself gearing up for a World Cup clash against Sri Lanka in Hyderabad. This impending encounter provides Arthur with a unique opportunity to reconnect with players he mentored from December 2019 to November 2021.
In candid words, Arthur stated, “Indeed, I am well-versed in their strengths and weaknesses, and we have meticulously devised strategies to counter them. Sri Lanka presents a formidable challenge, demanding nothing less than our absolute best to secure victory.”
In their most recent outing, Pakistan clinched a nerve-wracking 81-run triumph over the Netherlands in Hyderabad, marking an exhilarating beginning to their World Cup journey.
