Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur says he wanted to commit suicide after Pakistan lost to India in the World Cup match

"Last Sunday I wanted to commit suicide," Arthur said at the post-match press conference after the Proteas game at the Lord's on Sunday. "But it was, you know, it's only one performance.

After the crushing defeat handed to Pakistan by India in the recent World Cup 2019 match, Pakistan team coach Mickey Arthur has said that he was feeling so disappointed and depressed that he wanted to ‘commit suicide’.

“Last Sunday I wanted to commit suicide,” Arthur said at the post-match press conference after the Proteas game at the Lord’s on Sunday. “But it was, you know, it’s only one performance.

“It happens so quick. You lose a game; you lose another game; it’s a World Cup; media scrutiny; public expectation, and then you almost go into sort of survival mode. We’ve all been there,” he added.

Arthur had added that the Pakistan team felt ‘burnt’ after their crushing defeat to India.

The India – Pakistan match was held at Old Trafford in Manchester, where Pakistan had to face an embarrassing 89-run loss (D/L method).

Even after this defeat, Pakistan had made a come back keeping their hopes alive of making it to the semi-finals as they registered a 49-run victory over South Africa, knocking the Faf du Plessis-led team out of the competition.

Pakistan has five points from six games and is currently placed at the seventh spot in the table. They need to win all their remaining three games against New Zealand, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, and also hope that results of matches of other teams go in their favour so that they can make it to the last four stages.
