Mushtaq Ahmed predicts `torrid time` for Test-losing side
Karachi: Former Pakistani Test leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed has said he feared that Pakistan will face a torrid time against South Africa following their humiliating second Test loss against Zimbabwe.
Misbah-ul Haq and his men came under fire from former cricketers for the loss at Harare Sports Club on Saturday, which dropped Pakistan to sixth on the International Cricket Council ( ICC) rankings .
According to The Dawn, Mushtaq feared that Pakistan is in for a stormy time against the top Test nation in the world as they could not even beat Zimbabwe despite the cash-strapped country struggling with internal problems and their players encumbered with pay dispute with their cricket boards.
The win allowed Zimbabwe, who had not beaten a top Test-playing nation in more than a decade, to square the two-match series, the report added.
