There is tight security in India

The situation is even worse in Pakistan. If they lose the match against New Zealand on Saturday, November 4, they will be out of the tournament. Amidst Pakistan’s poor performance, coach Mickey Arthur has blamed tight security for the poor performance. He said, “Our players are used to playing freely, but we are so enmeshed in security that we cannot even share our breakfast with each other.

“The most difficult thing for us is that we are under tight security,” Arthur said in the press conference before the match against New Zealand. Honestly, I find it difficult. It seems that we have entered the Covid era. We are confined to our hotel rooms and floors here. There is such tight security that we even have breakfast alone. We cannot talk too much to our players. He said, our players are used to freedom. But we can’t go anywhere. We are not allowed to go anywhere. Even if we want to try to eat something at different places, we cannot do so. It is really suffocating for us.

Earlier, Mickey Arthur had called the ICC tournament a BCCI tournament after the defeat against India. He said, “To be honest, India vs Pakistan did not look like an ICC tournament. It looked like it was a bilateral series match. This is a complete B. Looked like a CCI event. I did not listen to Pakistan again and again through the microphone. These things affect the outcome of the match, but I don’t want to use it as an excuse.”
