Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur loses bet to Shadab Khan 06 Jun, 2018
LAHORE: Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur recently lost a bet to Shadab Khan and had to take the team out for a dinner. Prior to the start of Pakistan’s tour of the United Kingdom, Arthur had challenged Shadab to improve his batting. Shadab, who is primarily known as a leg-spinner, had told Arthur that he would score three half-centuries in as many matches. In the team’s opening Test against Ireland, Shadab scored a fifty and was seen pointing towards Arthur indicating that one was down. He scored another half-century in the Lord’s Test against England and this time raised two fingers towards the coach. The third half-century came in the Test against England in Leeds, and this time three fingers went up for the coach. Arthur said he had to take the entire team out for a meal after losing the bet but was glad to see such a commitment from a young player. “Shadab did what he said he would”. The coach also praised the atmosphere in Pakistan’s dressing room, saying that each player was willing to help another.
