KARACHI: Expressed disappointment over Pakistan cricket team’s poor show against New Zealand, Chief selector Inzamam ul Haq said that there are no excuses for such a bad show put up by the boys.
Addressing the media at UBL sports complex in Karachi, the chairman of national selection committee said, “Obviously we are all disappointed at the manner in which the team capitulated on Saturday.”
He further said that the selection committee picked the best men available and these players had recently created history by winning the Champions Trophy. “Selectors had picked the best available squad of players and the core of them won the ICC Champions Trophy only six months ago,” he said.
“No doubt the pitches in New Zealand are tough for most touring teams because it takes time to adjust to the conditions there,” he added.
“I always maintain it is no disgrace when you lose a game but to be not playing to potential is something that is unacceptable. What has disturbed us the most is that the experienced lot has not been able to perform so far and that’s not a good sign,” he stated.
On the other hand, Inzamam hailed the all-round performance from the Kiwis and admitted that they absolutely outclassed Pakistan in all aspects of the game.
