DUBAI: After Pakistan’s 9-wicket defeat by Sri Lanka’, Former Test captain Hanif Mohammad has said that the main cause of failure is Pakistan’s first innings low score which created stress among players from 1st day till last.
Man of the match Mahela Jayawardene strengthened his position by a tremendous century, he said while commenting on the issue
“While Pakistan players couldn’t played long innings, wicket keeper Sarfaraz Ahmed even didn’t save his team from defeat . Top-order and middle-order batting line fails to do so what tail enders can do at that moment ?” said Hanif Muhammad , Pakistan former cricketer.
“Starting from Thursday, at least two changes are necessary in the national team in the third and final Test of the series.”
“Azhar Ali will likely return to the team while Anwar Ali also deserves a chance.”
