The 40 year old Pakistan captain, Misbah-ul-Haq has warned his side against complacency after winning the first test match against Australia in the ongoing Pakistan vs. Australia test series in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Regarding the self approbation issues, Misbah had to make sure that his team does not by any sheer chance, get over confident and finally lose the next matches.
Misbah was heard quoting that looking ahead, they will be trying to do this winning part again and again, but that they must have to try to focus more and like, be more and more determined just in order to avoid any kind of complacency issues and to not get lazy which they take profound interests in doing sometimes. A major test playing team like Australia, they always have been there, always looking for opportunities, and that is why they have to be much more focused and determined, said a cheerful and happy, yet anxious Misbah, if reports published are to be believed.
The Pakistani skipper applauded his team’s all round efforts in the opening match of the series. He has always said that a win is always because of the team effort. The team effort was good as everyone did his role. To him, the inauguration has been good, but the ending needs to be even better.
The batsmen scored when it was needed the most (especially Younis Khan who did bat exceptionally well in both the innings of the match) and bowlers did manage to give breakthroughs whenever demands were being drawn forth, they did play their individual role magnificently whenever needed, by remaining within the decorum of a team. Cricket is due to names, but in this match all the players did well as a team and that was what the need of the hour of Pakistan is, uttered the young looking Misbah-ul-haq in the press conference.
