After a 5-0 whitewash in the recently concluded ODI series against the Kiwis, the men in green have been under scrutiny courtesy their dismal show with the bat on the entire tour. The batsmen have failed to adapt to the conditions and hence their worries against the moving ball have once again been alluded. This gives an opportunity to the people concerned to highlight their disabled skills to bat in this part of the world.
Former Pakistan skipper Moin Khan is also among the ones to point out the weaknesses in the Pakistan batting lineup to counter such confronting situations. As per the former Pakistani, the major problem of concern has been the batters failing to adjust in such confronting conditions.
Must give more time in the middle
Moin was of the opinion that asked batsmen to give themselves more time in the middle that will allow them to ease through the initial stages of the innings and would propel to lay a strong foundation. He was unimpressed with the kind of shot selections opted by the men in green considering the likes of Azhar Ali, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Babar Azam featuring in their ranks. This might reflect the panic and no-confidence situation in the dressing room. “The confidence level in the dressing room is pretty shaken up,” he said.
Khan, who has followed the Pakistani cricket from close quarters believed that the repetition of mistakes from the batsmen is denting the team and is the major reason for propelling a defeat. In his chat with the media, the former wicket-keeper was as expressive in highlighting the noteworthy mistakes committed by the batsmen. “We are repeating the same mistakes, which were committed during the recently concluded One Day International series of unnecessarily hitting,” said the worried man to Geo.tv.
Must learn from the opposition
Moin even heaped praises for the opposition in terms of them adapting to the conditions, although them being more acquainted with the physical conditions. He remarked about the persistence shown by the Kiwi opener, Colin Munro in the tour so far has given the quality that Pakistan’s seam attack possesses. “Colin Munro played a good inning, as he took his time earlier on as he saw the pitch was not as batting friendly and adjust to the conditions, this is where the Pakistani batsmen are lacking,” he added.
The worries for the Sub-continent giants don’t seem to stop as they succumb to another easy defeat in the first T20I today by bundling out for just 105, handling a seven-wicket win to the hosts to go 1-0 down in the three-match series.
