Pakistan crashed out of the ICC World T20 2016 after losing to Australia at Mohali in their final Super 10 fixture. The tournament had been a nightmare for Pakistan as barring a win against Bangladesh, there was nothing more to boast about. Coach Waqar Younis was pessimistic about his side and clearly stated that Pakistan’s poor fielding was the reason for their loss against Australia.

 

“I think the difference between the teams is very obvious and clear. We were not the best fielding side in the tournament. We need to think hard. The selectors need to look at that too. When you pick someone you have to look at the fielding aspect of his game,” Waqar said.

 

“Now that we have just been knocked out, if I say something it might sound as an excuse. But if you look deeply there has been no cricket in Pakistan for the last six-seven years; its effects are showing. We had match-winners, too. Saeed Ajmal and Mohammad Hafeez, who could bowl. Yes, there is indeed a bit of decline, and we need to arrest it. We will have to look at our domestic cricket and our infrastructure,” Waqar added about the decline of Pakistan cricket.

 

Younis also said that the lack of unity within the team hurt Pakistan’s cause. “That the boys are not in agreement, not united, these are all made-up things. I was myself disturbed that such rumours have been spread. We are not playing good cricket, and that’s the bottom line. As a result of that, we have to face this,” he said.
