When it comes to cricket the craze of this gentleman game is pretty high in Pakistan and the biggest reason behind this that other sports including the likes of Hockey, Football and Squash is struggling in the country.
The only hope for them is cricket when it comes to following Sports in their country. It is pretty evident that any one who either plays or become the member of support staff in Pakistan cricket face huge criticism if they are not performing their duty perfectly.
The recent to join the list is Pakistan head coach Misbah Ul Haq who has enjoyed mixed success from the moment he took up the responsibility of coaching Men in Green.
Misbah ul haq hit back at his critics in the recently concluded press conference after Men in Green outclassed Zimbabwe in a 2 match test series which was uploaded on Pakistan cricket official youtube channel.
Reacting to one such question, former skipper and current coach Misbah added that our job as player and support staff is to work hard and we are not bothered about what critics talk about our national side.
As the result is not in our favor and the only thing which we can control is our skills on the field during crunch moments of the game.
“South Africa did miss their key players but they were playing at home. Also, their replacements were able performers. It’s unfortunate that we couldn’t face their best side but in their own conditions, they were a strong side. You can only look after your own performances. It’s not our fault if the opposition isn’t at full strength,” he said.
“I don’t care about them and their criticism. We can only work and try hard. The bottom line is that results are not in our hands. As the head coach, I have not thought about my future and will not start doing that now either.”
“We had great results in both series. Winning in different and tough conditions was important for the team. The openers performed well during the Test series against Zimbabwe. Fawad Alam and Azhar Ali also made centuries. We performed better in the field as well,” said Misbah in support of his players” Misbah concluded.
