Speaking at a press conference after the national cricket team’s defeat to Sri Lanka in the T20 series, Misbah-ul-Haq said defeat was never good but defeat from a team that has no main players is enough to open the eyes.
He said that the Sri Lankan team played well, as we could not do the Yorkers as did by Sri Lanka. There is a lot of work to do in the bowling area. Waqar Younis will work on it. He said that Shadab Khan is working hard but due to lack of form he is under pressure, his confidence is to be restored.
Misbah-ul-Haq says that you have shown 3 years of patience, now It’s is my first series, everybody was calling Sri Lanka a weak team and we were being told to feed the new players but now everyone has seen the result? You can’t call anyone weak in international cricket.
According to the Chief Selector, Babar Azam did not score. We did not expose. We have to see that not to rely on just one batsman. We were doing well but could not do well in this series. On question of selecting Umar Akmal and Ahmad Shehzad, Misbah claimed that both players have performed well in the domestic circuit and are selected on their performances.
