Pakistan set a committee to seek reason of Asia Cup disaster

The Pakistan Cricket Board has set up an inquiry committee to ask questions about team’s recent lackluster performance in Asia Cup T20.

Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq and Yunis Khan will feature in this committee who will ask Shahid Afridi and his players the reasons for their early exit from the inaugural Asia Cup T20 cricket in Bangladesh.

Pakistan lost their last encounter to Bangladesh in a remarkable match that ousted them from the tournament and deprived them of playing the final against India on Sunday.

With World T20 knocking at the door, PCB decision will widen the rift between players.

Pakistan will play against India in World T20 on March 19 in Dharamsala.

Pakistan’s loss to Bangladesh also raised a question about Shahid Afridi’s retirement even before the world T20.

Pakistan lost their first match against India where they scored only 83 runs as their batsmen collapsed against Indian bowlers. India won the match by five wickets.

In the UAE game, they avoided a scare as UAE gave a good fight to them. And against Bangladesh, Pakistan scored only 129 runs which Bangladesh chased down with four four balls remaining.
