I just get overjoyed everytime I watch Babar Azam bat, Arthur said while speaking to Sawera Pasha on YouTube Channel.
People will say he’s my love child, I don’t care. He is gonna be very very special. Babar Azam is a 10,000 runs test cricketer. I remember everybody said I was favoring babar azam, Yes I was favoring him because I could see the potential and I knew what he would give Pakistan cricket in the long run. He is a genius.
Misbah-Ul-Haq eat, sleeps and drink cricket.
“Misbah is a great cricket brain. Misbah eat sleeps drink cricket. He’s very passionate about Pakistan cricket as well and I think he will do a wonderful job, said Mickey Arthur
“I don’t see a measure issue Misbah doing dual roles. I think Misbah with his knowledge of the domestic game is able to do those two roles and i have no doubt.”
“I played Amir in every test I possibly could and that was selfish from me as a coach.”
“I don’t think Mohammad Amir has ditch Pakistan cricket. I was part of that whole conversation with Mohammed Amir. He’s one of my favourites. I loved Amir because of his ability to bowl and his ability to win games.”
Yes he was skeptical about playing test cricket. I played him in every test I possibly could and that was selfish from me as a coach because I pushed him through a lot. His body couldn’t take it. He just got tired and people would mind because his pace was down. He just couldn’t handle anymore and for him to prolong his white ball career and Pakistan have got a phenomenal white ball bowler potential match winner. Who potentially could win Pakistan T20 world cup if they picked him.
“I never ever have favoured any player.”
“I was really surprised Mohammad Hafeez said that. I hate people talking about favoritism. I like building relationships with players. I never ever have favoured anybody but I’m partial to guys that I know can win games for my team and have the ambitious to become a match winner.”
