Test Captain Misbah-ul-Haq, Ian Chappell responded to criticism of Pakistan, said they were “unnecessary and inappropriate” by someone with dignity Chappell in the game.
Speaking to linkhats minutes after Pakistan lost the third and final Test of the series in Sydney – they lost successive tests 12th in the country over 17 years – Chappell said Cricket Australia should reconsider its use on a future trip to Pakistan that country.
“Pakistan has lost 12 games on the trot Test in Australia, and there is no need to give them a kick in the ass,” said Chappell. “Cricket Australia has begun to say ‘listen, if things do not improve, we will stop the invitation”.
“You can not continue [to play bad] cricket. You can not bowl well, field placements and field sloppily conservative and expect to play a proper cricket in Australia.”
In his column for cricket.com.au, Misbah, who bear the brunt of most criticism captain, asked whether the abysmal record of the recent Australia in Asia justify reconsideration of the same.
Australia Lost More than US In Asia
Australia lost nine in a row last Test in India, UAE and Sri Lanka; Since 2008, they have lost 13 of their 18 Tests in Asia and won only one.
“The comments do not make sense or fit cricketer of his stature,” Misbah write. “Australia has been on the losing side in a long journey recently. They have been swept away by the Sri Lankan forces that have Mahela Jayawardena and Kumar Sangakkara and some 10 players still have to test their names.
“So missing the Australian one-day international series 0-5 in South Africa. Lately we have been washed by the United Arab Emirates and India. If we use the comment Chappell to Australia, this means that if they continue to be whitened by the subcontinent regularly , so they do not need to be there? and if Australia did not go to Africa or Asia team did not travel to Australia because they will be better? ”
Misbah has been under pressure at home too, but in this case for the comments made after the match in Sydney. Asked whether he felt his team represent the best chance of Pakistan has been in Australia for a long-term loss, Misbah said: “Yes, you could say, but at 99, when Pakistan came, I thought it was one of the team is stronger than ever, bowling attack is stronger in terms of experience, in terms of hitting, so many superstars on this team. we lose that, too. ”
Side, led by Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis calculated, Shoaib Akhtar, Saqlain Mushtaq and Mushtaq Ahmed from attack; Saeed Anwar, Mohammad Yousuf, Inzamam-ul-Haq and Ijaz Ahmed is part of the batting order.
Australia side, whitewashed, they will soon become one of the largest in the history of the test, although some may argue that Pakistan is past its peak.
Comments Misbah, however, was interpreted as an attack on page 1999. This forced him to issue a clarification on Twitter, unusual for him, and also signs of stress he will retire from Test cricket.
“My answer is that the 99 team is the best team,” Misbah tweeted. “My goal is not to disrespect them. I do not try to use them as an excuse. They are our legend … I have nothing but respect for the team @wasimakramlive 1999. As captain, then, it is one person I has worked and helped me a lot. ”
In his column, Misbah said he was taking “time-out” of discussions when it will. “I want to spend time at home and then play in the PSL. Then I analyze how the passion for cricket I have left to me, and if I can play … PSL will be important for me to make a decision on his international future I “
