MANCHESTER – Pakistan’s head coach Mickey Arthur urged his players to become heroes by beating bitter rivals India in a World Cup match for the first time at Old Trafford on Sunday.
India have won all six previous meetings in World Cups, but Arthur has told his players to rise to the occasion.
“It doesn’t get more exciting,” said Arthur on the eve of the match. “I am telling our players in the dressing room, you could be a hero tomorrow.
“Your careers are going to be defined by a moment in the game. You do something incredible tomorrow, you’ll be remembered forever.”
Arthur has already guided Pakistan to one famous victory over India in the Champions Trophy final two years ago and knows what to expect from the biggest clash in cricket.
