Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur has said that he wanted to “commit suicide” after his side’s loss to arch-rivals India on June 16.

Arthur admitted that his side are under immense pressure constantly since they are always been scrutinised by the media and have to live up to fans’ expectations.

However, with the men in green having beaten South Africa on Sunday, Arthur pointed out that one positive performance can change everything.

“It happens so quick. You lose a game, you lose another game. It’s a World Cup. [There’s] media scrutiny, public expectations and then you almost go into survival mode. We’ve all been there,” Arthur was quoted as saying by Saj Sadiq on Twitter .

“Last Sunday I wanted to commit suicide, but it’s only one performance. We always keep telling our players it’s one performance, who’s going to stimulate us today. I thought for us the way Fakhar (Zaman) and Imam (Ul-Haq) went out and got us a start, that sort of quietened the nerves down a little bit.

Pakistan’s next match will be against New Zealand at Edgbaston on Wednesday.
