Former Pakistan captains Mohsin Khan and Aamir Sohail have questioned the team management and the captains competence in handling the team after it lost the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series against Australia two games to one.
Pakistan were hot favourites for the series. Our team was better than Australia in the conditions. Barring fielding,we were stronger than them in all the other departments. We shouldve won the final ODI and losing under the circumstances is very concerning, Mohsin told The Express Tribune.
He said: What I feel is that there was lack of a proper game plan. We failed to capitalise on good starts and made illogical decisions in crucial stages. Removing Saeed Ajmal from the attack when he was on fire in the final ODI was a blunder.
I wont blame just the captain but the coach as well,who is also responsible. Misbahul Haq is a hardworking player but not a smart captain. He needs guidance,which he is unfortunately not getting. Because of our mistakes,millions of fans who were praying for the win were left heartbroken.
Former captain Aamir Sohail was also unimpressed by Misbahs captaincy.
He should learn how to use his fast-bowlers like Australia did. He didnt utilise Junaid Khan when the spinners were struggling with the wet ball.
