The newly appointed Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq has been surrounded by the questions of his coaching style. The No.1 T20I team, Pakistan, has lost the T20I series in the home ground against Sri Lanka. The defeat was more upsetting because the Sri Lanka team, which toured Pakistan, was inexperienced.
Now the questions have arisen on Head coach Misbah-ul-Haq. He also trusted Sarfaraz Ahmed and handed over the team to him in the home ground. The skipper has also shown low performance as he lost early wickets. Misbah is surrounded for questions about his strategy in the game and here was the reply of Misbah to all the questions.
“Maybe I did something? Probably I made our right-hand batsmen switch to left-handed batting or maybe made our right-handers bowl with the left arm or vice-versa?”
We played very poor cricket – Misbah-ul-Haq
Misbah accepts his mistake but he is also surprised because its the same unit which has played in T20I and reached on no.1. He is also impressed with the bowling and batting department of Sri Lanka.
“It’s an example for us the way they have beaten us in every department,” Misbah said.
“They won the games in an almost one-sided fashion leaving us in tatters and with lots of questions to answer. We played very poor cricket and definitely it’s my responsibility but I am still thinking what really happened because these are the same set of players that have been playing for long and made the team No. 1.”
Pakistan who is playing after a long time in their home ground had to face a defeat against Sri Lanka in all three T20Is. The visitors proved that they are inexperienced but talented. Both the departments of the visitors were very good, especially the spinner Wanindu Hasaranga bowled very well. He was very successful in taking the wickets of the host.
