Former Pakistan allrounder Adbul Razzaq continues to make the news for all the wrong reasons in recent times. Just a few days ago, he was being slammed from all around after he gave a religious angle to India’s defeat to England in the World Cup. With that defeat hampering Pakistan’s chances of progressing ahead, Abdul Razzaq had accused the Indian players of not doing well since they were not Muslims.
Abdul Razzaq has now come up with yet another controversial statement and this time it is much worse. The former allrounder took a shot at current Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur in his latest derogatory statement. Razzaq said that the only way Arthur would leave Pakistan job is when he passes away.

Pakistan journalist Saj Sadiq posted Razzaq’s comment on his Twitter account. He too condemned the statement, writing:
“Some of the comments being made on television by former players are nothing short of disgraceful. Abdul Razzaq “the only way Mickey Arthur will leave the Pakistan coaching job is when he passes away” #Cwc19″

Meanwhile, Arthur’s contract, which was extended by two years after the Champions Trophy triumph in 2017, will expire at the end of the World Cup. Arthur took charge of Pakistan in 2016 and has had a very adventurous ride. The former Australia and South Africa coach guided Pakistan to the historic Champions Trophy title in 2017.
But barring that, he does not have much to celebrate during his stint with Pakistan. In the ongoing World Cup, Pakistan crashed out at the group stage. The Men in Green did put up some good performances in the end but it was just not enough for them to enter the last four. Pakistan finished on 11 points, the same as New Zealand but missed out net run-rate. And with Pakistan’s wait for their second World Cup title getting extended by four more years, it will be interesting to see whether they would give Arthur an extension or not.
