The Pakistan team management led by Manager Talat Ali strongly refuted the allegations levelled against head coach Mickey Arthur on his supposed ‘angry behaviour’ at the end of Day Two of the ongoing Test match against South Africa in Centurion.
In a statement, the management said, “as per the norm, Mickey held a debriefing meeting at the end of the day’s play which was held in a cordial atmosphere with inputs from team members and management as is the usual practice.”

“The head coach, team management, captain and all team members are totally united with a singular aim of producing positive results,” the statement read.
