He said, ‘The new players performed well but they could not execute our plan in the way we wanted. Even with the bat, when we were trying to get hold of the match, we lost wickets easily. That’s why we could not win some matches even after being in a good position.
Pakistan skipper Babar Azam blamed the three-match series defeat against England on injuries to the team’s main fast bowlers. “We were unlucky as our main fast bowlers were injured,” the Pakistan captain said after suffering a 0-3 defeat for the first time in the three-match series at home. Well done but they couldn’t execute our plan in the way we wanted. Even with the bat, when we were trying to get hold of the match, we lost wickets easily. That’s why we could not win some matches even after being in a good position.
Pakistan’s premier fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi has been ruled out of the series due to a knee injury. Bowlers like Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah could not play in the remaining two Test matches due to injuries in the first Test. Babar said, “The role of fitness is most important in the present era. If you are not ‘super fit’ then you will not be able to play in all the three formats. Pakistan gave Mohammad Ali a chance to make his debut in the first Test of this series. He took four wickets in the match but did not get a single breakthrough in the second Test. Mohammad Wasim made his debut in the third test but could only take one wicket. Babar said, “When you do not have the strongest bowlers, it becomes difficult for the new bowlers to adjust quickly.
