Asia Cup 2016: I would suggest PCB to use services of our batting greats: Saqlain Mushtaq after Pakistan's loss
Saqlain says the Pakistani national side is losing games because of their batting and it needs a serious outlook.
New Delhi: After another disastrous outing in the ongoing Asia Cup, Pakistan were ousted from the tournament after losing to Bangladesh on Wednesday, at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka.
Former Pakistan spinner Saqlain Mushtaq said that the he would suggest PCB to use the services of Javed Miandad, Inzamam-ul-Haq and Muhammad Yousuf to resolve problems in batting.
"I would suggest to the Board to use the services of our batting greats like Javed Miandad, Inzamam-ul-Haq and Muhammad Yousuf to resolve the problems we are facing in our batting department," Saqlain said.
The former off-spinner also said that the experience of the Pakistani batting greats should help Pakistan across all levels.
"I think our own batting greats can do a lot to help the batsmen in the national team and even those coming up in domestic cricket. The PCB must ask these batting greats to use their experience to help the national team players and also work with batsmen at the domestic, junior and academy levels," Saqlain said.
The veteran offie added that the Pakistani national side is losing games because of their batting and it needs a serious outlook.
"We are losing matches because our batting is just not doing enough. We have quality bowlers but they also need something to bowl with. There is no consistency in our batting in limited over cricket. And we need to look at this seriously," he added.
Pakistan have lost two matches in the Asia Cup so far and have a dead-rubber tie left against Sri Lanka on Friday. They would want to win the game against fellow strugglers Lanka in order to at least finish third in the table.
