Former Pakistan captain Rameez Raja said- not the power in our team, which is needed
Basit said – It is not easy to lose to Sri Lanka's second-class team in two successive T20s
Dainik BhaskarOct 09, 2019, 12:22 PM IST Sports Desk. Rameez Raja and Basit Ali have demanded a separate coach for Pakistan's ODI and T20 teams. According to these two former players, Misbah-ul-Haq has been a defensive cricketer and he is not a good coach in terms of short format. Misbah has been given the dual responsibility of head coach and chief selector last month. The Sri Lankan team is on a tour of Pakistan. Pakistan won the ODI series but Sri Lanka team has won 2 matches out of the 3 match T20 series.
Angered by the performance of the Rameez team, former captain Rameez Raja said on the team's poor performance in T20, "It does not seem that our team has any plan. They are playing negative cricket. When this situation is at home, then think about what will happen in Australia? The next T20 World Cup is there. I don't think Misbah is the right choice for head coaches in terms of short format. Why are they giving opportunities to players who have been tried many times before and failed every time. ”Rameez has played 57 Tests and 198 ODIs. At the moment, he is commenting. According to Rameez – The level of domestic cricket in Pakistan is so bad that players do not look fit.
Basit said – Misbah's attitude, former middle order batsman Basit Ali is also upset with Misbah. In an interview, he said, "One-dayers and T20s require aggressive play." Misbah has been successful as a Test cricketer. He can prove to be a good coach in this format. For ODIs and T20s, we should make a different coach. Here you cannot take the field with a defensive mind set. Because, there is no scope of draw here. The result is sure to come. Why were Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad named in the team? Then you can also get Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez back. Don't Pakistan have young talent? "
