MELBOURNE: Pakistan’s coach, Mickey Arthur said on Saturday that T20 should be the sole domain of franchises as this would give a boost to ailing ODI cricket.
In an interview to an Australian publication, Arthur said he had never been a massive advocate of international T20 cricket, except a World Cup every two or three years.
Arthur has urged the Pakistani players to abandon their outdated approach to ODI cricket after the team’s loss to Australia by 92 runs in Brisbane.
"Scores of 300 are the norm. Three-hundred used to be incredibly good and teams used to win more times than not, but on wickets like this teams aren't going to win. Three-hundred is a 50-50 score,” Arthur said.
