Misbah blames New Zealand flop for injuring covid-19 protocol

Pakistan’s head coach Misbah-ul-Haq said on Monday that his fate was in the hands of national cricket authorities after speculation about the team’s future after the New Zealand series defeat.

Misbah, who has lost all three rounds of the Test series in four months, blamed New Zealand’s Corona virus for extending isolation for the latest failure.

“I will brief the cricket committee on Tuesday and it is their right to give it to the board,” he told reporters in Lahore.

Pakistan lost the T20 series 2-1 and lost heavily in both the Tests. He has also lost Test series in Australia and England under Misbah.

The tour of New Zealand started badly when six players had a positive experience on arrival and the team was confined to their hotel. He was later warned to violate the Corona virus by milling.

We had to stay in the room for 18 to 19 days, we couldn’t do anything, we didn’t even run. “We were in the rooms and just walking in the rooms,” Misbah said.

“Leaving our situation aside, this (coveted) has affected all the teams and you will definitely see that the performances are up and down and there are injuries.”

Pakistan, whose captain Babar Azam lost his broken thumb, lost the first Test by 101 runs and the second by an innings and 176 runs.

Misbah described Babar’s absence as a “huge loss” for the team that took part in the setback.

“We’re trying to figure out how to control the performance. There are a lot of fluctuations, so the end result is being affected. can go. [and] The injuries affected us a lot.

“Babar Azam was a big problem, it was a big loss for us. Babar has the same role as Ken Williamson for our team, so it was a big shock. Nevertheless, let me say this. “We did not leave any stone unturned. We did not compete in these three departments but the opposition was better than us,” he said.

The head coach said he had no doubt about his team’s overall effort and the Kiwis won because they played better cricket. “We’ve seen a lot of things we need to improve,” he added.

He said it was a “fact” that Code 19 and biosafety “bubbles” had “somehow affected” the players’ performance.

“You could say it’s an excuse, but the whole world is witnessing it.”
