Srinagar, Sep 8: Pakistan Head coach and chief selector Misbah ul Haq has said that Pakistan not winning the Test series by 1-0 and T20 series by 2-0 margin in England is regretable as they could have easily done that.
“On the tour, we should have won the Test series 1-0 and T20 series 2-0. The results of the series will always be regretted but despite it, we have found a lot of positive things,” Misbah said while speaking to reporters in Lahore.
Misbah refused to accept that the rankings of the men’s team decline during his tenure and reminded that the team was on a losing streak before his appointment.
“When I took over the coaching, the performance of our T20 team was going down. We lost to South Africa, England. The main aspect of declining was the performances of our main players,” he said.
“We are trying to push new players towards it and how they played in the T20 series against England. These are the signs that we are going in the right direction,” he added.
“Naseem and Shaheen are young, to deliver Anderson-Broad like performances they need a lot of time and experience, based on their experience I am satisfied with them on this tour,” Misbah said about bowling attack.
“I hope they will get better. If we exclude that one session of the first Test and a few overs in the second T20I where we got panicked. Those are the things where we have to improve,” he added.
