Islamabad, Feb 25 (ANI): Pakistan's captain Misbah-ul-Haq has hit back at criticism after his side's 4-0 defeat in the one-day series against England, saying that the team needs to be patient.
"I've said that even after the Test series win, we have to be patient," The Express Tribune quoted Misbah, as saying.
"We should talk of the ground realities, but we talk on other points. We should talk of the bad performance and the areas where we showed weaknesses. We committed mistakes: they scored four hundreds, we managed only four fifties and their bowlers took wickets, ours didn't," he added.
Meanwhile, reports have suggested that the 4-0 defeat against England in the ODI series has gone a long way in prompting the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to consider a major overhaul as part of its plans for the 2015 World Cup.
While Dav Whatmore and Julien Fountain are certain to replace head coach Mohsin Khan and fielding coach Ijaz Ahmed, as confirmed by a PCB official, more changes are also expected, The Express Tribune reports.
PCB Chairman Zaka Ashraf refused to go into details, but said that an overhaul will be considered.
"Everything will be carefully taken into account after the England series is over," Ashraf said.
Meanwhile, a PCB official said the issue of change of captaincy for limited-over formats will be the main issue under discussion in the coming days. Besides taking input from the new coach, the matter will also be discussed in the governing board meeting on March 1, added the official.
"There will be consideration and the decision will be made in the best interest of the team," a board official said, adding that Shahid Afridi was a leading candidate for ODI and Twenty20 captaincy. (ANI)
