Misbah wants Pakistan to improve in fielding, fast bowling

Islamabad: Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq has said that his team needs to improve in its fast bowling and fielding if it wants to impress in Zimbabwe and be at the top of their game.

In eight Tests in Zimbabwe since 1995, Pakistan have beaten the hosts six times, including the seven-wicket win in Bulawayo in 2011; the last time Zimbabwe won against the visitors at home was in 1995.

The loss in the first ODI match was Pakistan`s first defeat to Zimbabwe in any format in the last 15 years, the report said.

Misbah said that two of the team`s openers were new, and one of them might be a regular feature in the Tests, along with Azhar Ali, who will play at No.3.
