After an unexpected defeat, Pakistan faced against England in the Manchester test, the morale of the fans and followers have slightly gone down. As the expectations were on the peak after the marvelous first innings of Men in Green, the batting line collapsed in the second innings.
Although the bowling seemed to improve in both of their innings, but Chris Woakes and Jos Buttler added a match-snatching partnership getting dominant over Pakistan’s bowling line-up.
The match looked in Pakistan’s favor and the things were going pretty fine in an easy flow until the shock that the virtual crowd felt in the last innings. Inzamam ul Haq, the former chief selector of Pakistan Cricket Team says the team could have won. Being better than the hosts England, Pakistan can still win the series as the three-match test series is not over yet.
Pakistan vs England: Inzamam ul Haq still believes in the series win
Speaking on his official YouTube channel, Inzamam ul Haq said, “I think Pakistan team is better than England and we should have won the first Test. It’s very disappointing but I believe Pakistan can still win the series.”
“When you are going through a tough phase, the team’s body language should not change. This was clearly the case in the first Test because Pakistan players seemed under pressure after the second innings batting collapse on the third day,” he added.
“The role of the team management is vital after such a defeat because the players’ morale will be down. They need to talk about the positives, like scoring 300 plus runs and the first innings lead, rather than focusing on the negatives,” he said.
