Pak Colts blame 'pressure cooker' tie against India for U-19 WC debacle
Islamabad, Sep 8 (ANI): Pakistan's young players have admitted that the major reason behind their poor showing at the Under-19 World Cup in Australia was their quarterfinal loss to India and the huge mental pressure which was exerted on them due to it.
The young players were replying to the several question put forward to them by he Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) four-member inquiry, which was set up to investigate the reason behind their dismal performance at the World Cup.
"As far as our position in the tournament was concerned, it was over ever since we lose the quarterfinal. The boys were so depressed and despite the best possible efforts of the entire team management to motivate us, we could not get over from the shock as we were mentally and physically exhausted, that was the main reason of losing other matches, the source revealed," the Nation quoted captain Babar Azam, as saying.
A well-placed source confirmed that Javed Miandad, who is a part of the inquiry committee, agreed with the boys' version that whenever a match is played against India there is huge pressure on the players.
Miandad urged the young Pakistani players to take this defeat as a lesson and never let their emotions get the better of them. (ANI)
