Misbah-ul-Haq, the head coach and chief selector of the Pakistani cricket team, says that he is very sorry that he did not win the Test series and T20 series in England.
Pakistan lost the three-Test series against England by one wicket while the three-match T20 International series ended in a draw.
But Misbah believes the Pakistani team should have won the Test series 1-0 and the T20 series 2-0.
Speaking to media in Lahore on Monday, Misbah-ul-Haq said that his biggest problem was that the Pakistan team was in a position to win the first Test after taking five wickets against England. Getting out of hand is the most painful thing for them that they will always regret.
Misbah-ul-Haq said: “When you are in a winning position and lose the Test, then it is not easy for the team to back down immediately but the team recovered quickly after losing a match in the T20 series as well. He won the next match.
Misbah-ul-Haq said it was possible that the results were not yet “what we want to see” but that he was satisfied that the team was moving in the right direction.
Can’t ignore cricketers based on age alone
Misbah-ul-Haq said about the T20 team that even when he became the head coach, the team was still coming down in the world rankings and was losing. One of the major reasons for this is that There was a difference in the performance of Fakhrazman, Shadab Khan and Hassan Ali.
“All three were out of form but the way the team played both T20 matches on the tour of England shows that the team is getting ready again and their goal is to bring the team to the top.”
Sabah-ul-Haq says that many aspects of this visit have been encouraging. He is focused on young players and he believes that
A combination of senior and young players will create a good combination.
“We will continue to provide opportunities to young players in the future.”
Misbah-ul-Haq says the way the Pakistani team has scored over 190 in both the T20 International matches shows that the team is moving in the right direction.
Misbah-ul-Haq says that the right investment is being made on young bowlers.
“Over time, these bowlers will gain experience and maturity. It’s a process that requires patience. “
He said about Naseem Shah that this young bowler showed very good performance in domestic cricket that is why he has come to the top. “He is one of the best fast bowlers in the world right now.”
“It will take time for Naseem Shah and Shaheen Afridi to give performances like Anderson and Broad,” he says. We should not be confused about that. “
Misbah-ul-Haq said about senior players that no player can be ignored on the basis of age alone.
According to the head coach and chief selector of the Pakistani cricket team, “the number one wicket-keeper at the moment is Sarfraz after Rizwan.”
Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik and Wahab Riaz are being given opportunities and different combinations are being seen with the next T20 World Cup in mind and by the World Cup, the picture will be clear as to who will be the best fifteen players. Wahab Riaz still has a role to play in limited overs cricket and he bowled very well in the last T20.
Sarfraz Ahmed is also part of the plan
At present, the number one wicket-keeper is second only to Rizwan. Sarfraz Ahmed was not given a nominal chance in the tour of England and you cannot draw conclusions about any player on the basis of just one match.
Misbah-ul-Haq said about Babar Azam that “decisions are not being imposed on him from outside. Babar Azam is making his own decisions and he will not learn unless he makes his own decisions.
Misbah-ul-Haq made it clear that the team management does not make decisions under the pressure of criticism and comments on social media.
Regarding the large number of coaching staff, Misbah-ul-Haq said that it was necessary due to the presence of 29 players in the tour.
“In the past, the first six batsmen have been given batting practice and that’s it.
“But now it has become necessary for the 11th-ranked batsmen to be given proper batting practice. For other drills, it is now necessary to have an adequate number of coaching staff in the team.
