The head coach of Pakistan, Waqar Younis has held some of Shahid Afridi’s decisions responsible for Pakistan’s miserable run in the World T20. He has mentioned these details in a report that is to be presented to an inquiry committee.
Waqar Younis has also blamed players’ poor fitness as one of the main reasons for Pakistan’s horrifying show in the T20 mega event. He has also included a point that players were unable to implement the game plan during contests that has cost them big time.
Pakistan was able to register just a single win in the four matches that they played. Pakistan played like absolute champions against Bangladesh in their opening game of the World T20, which gave Pakistani fans a glimpse of hope, but, the Green Shirts couldn’t continue their heroic performance in the tournament and lost the next three games against India, New Zealand and Australia.
After Pakistan’s defeat against Australia, Waqar Younis pointed towards the fact that Pakistan has not seen international cricket for the past seven to eight years and its effect is getting visible now. Plus, Pakistan has lost their match-winners like Saeed Ajmal and Muhammad Hafeez who used to be a key bowler. Overall, Pakistan cricket is on a decline and domestic cricket and infrastructure needs to be fixed.
Waqar has also suggested in the report that drastic changes are need to be made to improve the state of cricket in Pakistan. The report will be presented to the inquiry committee on Tuesday.
