Chennai: India and Pakistan cricket teams played on last 14th in the ‘Cricket World Cup-2023’ series. India won by 7 wickets. Mickey Arthur had his say after the loss. Mickey Arthur had said, “To be honest, it was not like an ICC event. It was like a BCCI event. It was a bilateral series. There was never a ‘Dil Dil Pakistan’ sound on the ground.” His comments were criticized.
In this case, the video of Mickey Arthur’s former captain Michael Vaughan is now going viral. This video is being widely shared after Pakistan’s defeat to Afghanistan in Chennai.
Former England captain Michael Vaughan and former Australian player Adam Gilchrist were speaking on the podcast. Then Gilchrist would be talking about Rohit Sharma’s captaincy. Michael Vaughan then interrupted and said, “Gilchrist, you are right about Rohit Sharma’s ability. The way he used the players on the field, especially giving Siraj extra overs is an example of Rohit’s captaincy. You said he did well with the bat too.
All I want to say at this juncture is one thing. It was a key move by Rohit’s captaincy when he told the DJ not to play the song “Dil Dil Pakistan”, according to Pakistan team managing director Mickey Arthur. Mickey Arthur has admitted that Pakistan’s failure was due to the song not being broadcast. Knowing this in advance, Rohit told the DJ that he should not play the song ‘Dil Dil Pakistan’, knowing that the Pakistani team should not listen to the inspirational song. Actually it shows Rohit’s intelligence. Because most captains don’t think about DJs. But Rohit has acted intelligently in that regard,” Kalai said. This video is now going viral again.
