Pak coach urges ICC to reconsider net run rate rule

Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur urged ICC to give head-to-head record a higher priority than net run rate after the team’s final game of the 2019 World Cup against Bangladesh. “I would have liked the ICC to consider head to head because tonight we would be in the semi-final. It is disappointing, and it just goes back to our first game (a heavy defeat) against the West Indies,” Mickey Arthur said. “We had an opportunity to beat Australia and we didn’t take that. Those are the two nightmares I’m going to have,” he added. Pakistan went into the match against Bangladesh on Friday needing to win by a record margin in order to pip New Zealand to final semi-final spot on the basis of net run rate. 

“What the system has done to us is that after one very poor game, you really battle to recover again. So it’s a very disappointed dressing room, no congratulations going on because we haven’t qualified. Congratulations to the four who have, I think they’ve played the best cricket so far and may the best team win,” said Arthur.
