Mark Coles claims poor fielding a major drawback in first T20I


Pakistan women’s team coach Mark Coles claimed poor fielding for their defeat by 71 runs against West Indies at Southend Club on Friday.

While talking to the media after the match, Coles said that the girls were way poor in the fielding as they dropped a couple of chances which cost them a match.

“We really need to work on our fielding. If you miss so many chances while fielding then how it is possible to show dominance,” he said.

Coles felt really disappointing on team’s overall performance at home ground. He is looking forward to mend their techniques and send them strongly in the upcoming match. “We all saw them crumbling on the field which is obviously a concern for us as team management,” she said.

To a query about the team’s performance despite attending a long training camp, Coles said that players were failed to execute the plans.

“Again I would say it is disappointing for me to see them falling apart,” she said.

Coles once again influenced to have an A team which is important for them to have immense options on the bench.

“Once we will have players in back up then the things will start resolving automatically,” he said.

On the other hand, man-of-the-match Deandra Dottin enjoyed playing in Pakistan as the right-handed batswoman smashed 90 runs with the help of eight boundaries and four sixes. “The pitch was good which helped me play shots with ease,” she said.

Anisa Mohammad, who took two wickets in the match, while talking to the media said that their batters batted strongly which gave them a defendable total.

“I think credit goes to our batters who got adjusted in the conditions so quickly,” she said.

While answering a question about his presence in Pakistan for the second time, Anisa said: “A lot of things have been changed here”
