Misbah embarrassed at Pakistan’s ODI whitewash


The appearance of despondency was very recognizable on ambushed Misbah-ul-Haq’s face on Wednesday. The lead trainer offered no reasons after Pakistan was embarrassingly overpowered in the One-day International series with the drained England side chronicle a popular decisive victory.

Driven by Ben Stokes, England — ordered by specialists as the ‘C’ side after the best option crew was constrained into the hole up after seven positive Covid-19 tests among the players and care staff — shocked the Babar Azam-drove Pakistan group in every one of the three ODIs.

“Nobody can guard a particularly shocking show. It was a very poor and frustrating execution. We just couldn’t deal with the conditions in the initial two matches [Pakistan being packaged out for scores of 141 and 195]. It was basically not on, frankly,” Misbah told correspondents while tending to a virtual post-series meeting without further ado before the Pakistan crew left Birmi­ngham for Nottingham, which has the main T20 International on Friday.

“We set up a fair complete [331-9] in the keep going game on the rear of fine innings from Babar [an amazing 158]and [Mohammad] Rizwan [74]. It was a sort of score which, in my view, we ought to have guarded yet didn’t.

“Generally, it was a harshly disillusioning exertion from us in all divisions, particularly in the bowling while our handling was unfortunate no doubt all through the series. In this way, it is crazy to protect our presentation in the [ODI] series. The bowling was similarly as poor and somebody like Faheem Ashraf was totally crude, which was astonishing since he was awesome in South Africa.”

Misbah, who supplanted Mickey Arthur as the lead trainer after the 2019 50-over World Cup, nullified the impression Pakistan is among the frail sides in worldwide cricket while reviewing the successful series this year.

“I don’t figure one can rate Pakistan among the striving groups, and in the event that we look in the new past, Pakistan won six series in progression across all arrangements. We beat South Africa for times this year both home and away. Aggregately as a unit, we put extraordinary exhibitions against them,” he thought back.

“Generally we believed that our group was advancing progressing nicely. However, resulting in these present circumstances series maybe we are starting over, which is extremely baffling. Having said that we simply need to discover answers to find out with respect to how we will bob back and furthermore investigate why out of nowhere we turned out badly against this England side.

“I don’t have a clue what occurred in the hole between the last series and since there was no aggressive cricket with the exception of the [reminder of]Pakistan Super League. It’s a very stressful sign for me as the lead trainer since I and the remainder of instructing staff are similarly to be accused as the players if the group neglects to perform.

“Clearly, when we make arrangements and the onus is on the players to execute them in the field yet I’m a firm devotee that it’s a group game and everybody included needs to bear the duty. Furthermore, when certain plans are not executed, then, at that point there’s no reason. Now and again, if batting clicks, helpless handling, for example, yesterday [Tuesday] cost us truly on the grounds that on a pitch where there’s nothing for the bowlers and the players are scoring 7-8 runs for each finished and assuming you begin spilling gets at critical stages, you are obviously requesting inconvenience.

Misbah likewise regretted that absence of polished methodology in all circles of Pakistan cricket was another reason for concern that sabotaged the advancement of the worldwide group.

“On the off chance that you investigate England, you’ll find there is a legitimate arrangement set up and that is the reason they are exceptionally fortunate and in an extravagant situation to call upon an immense pool of players while choosing the public side,” the previous Pakistan skipper focused.

“Though we don’t have that kind of framework and that is the explanation we regularly battle to discover players for specific spots at the hour of choice. Also, as all realize that our center request batting is was risky during the white-ball series against South Africa, which had been a significant issue for some time now on the grounds that the folks raced into the side haven’t had the option to settle down. Now and again, we must choose the option to pick those experts who do well in homegrown rivalries,” Misbah added.
