National team head coach Misbah-ul-Haq has justified the criticism on the team’s performance.
Speaking in a Pakistan Cricket Board podcast, Misbah-ul-Haq said that criticism after the series against New Zealand is justified, this criticism is being validated because only those who believe in the team’s abilities are criticizing.
The head coach said that in the first test match, the Pakistan team showed its potential by fighting. The team took the match to the last 5 overs, although the situation was difficult, after which the fans expect you to fight. So if you don’t live up to expectations, criticism is justified. We’ve played less than we can handle, so criticism happens.
Misbah-ul-Haq said that we did not play well in all three fields, we have to get out of such a situation for the future because in any game the goal is to win and when you do not win there is a disappointment, so There is frustration and regret, it is a pity not to play as expected.
The head coach believes that we could have done well on this tour but we did not take advantage of the opportunities, we had many opportunities but we did not take these opportunities in our hands, it happens in cricket but try to see it Why is this happening to us, we could have brought the matches closer but we are not able to do that.
Misbah-ul-Haq said that drop catches have been our problem before and here too our biggest problem was drop catches, we have to improve our fielding. Missing a chance in this series made a big difference.
“Now that we have the home series against South Africa, it’s a good opportunity for us to improve in every area, to play well, and restore confidence in those who have made mistakes,” the head coach said. , Home conditions and competitors will see the necessary changes in front of the team.
It should be noted that the Pakistan cricket team from New Zealand lost 2-1 in the T20 series and 2-0 in the Test series.
