Pakistan’s team better than England, admits English captain


Sharja: English captain Alastair Cook who very recently defeated Australia in the Ashes admits Pakistan team is better than England and Misbah ul Haq’s captaincy has been outclass throughout the test series.

During a press conference in Sharja after the end of test series, the English captain Alastair Cook said England’s team is not better than Pakistan that’s why Pakistan won the test series. Any way it was a difficult tour and the English players worked really hard during the last 15 days but were unable to achieve their target.

In reply to a question Cook said, the English batsmen faced Pakistani bowlers very well even under difficult situations but wasted some important catches while fielding, had they not dropped these catches the situation would have been different. Alastair admitted Pakistan of not having better spinners than England but said efforts are required to produce world class spinners.

The English captain while appreciating Pakistan captain’s performance said Misbah ul Haq as a captain has shown excellent performance and I’ll give Misbah full credit for making his team win.
