LAHORE (Khyber News): Waqar Younis has openly admitted that the defeat in the opening Test against England was ‘shocking’ further explaining that the team management was not expecting it. Having said that he also admits that it happens in cricket and his team has the full capacity and ability of bouncing back in the series, there is no denying the fact that our team is inexperienced, but the can turn the tables by winning the second Test against England.
In addition to that, Waqar Younis said that out team will gain experience when they will play so we have to be patient. He further said that both Naseem Shah and Shaheen Afridi are talented. The way they bowled in both innings was quite amazing but unfortunately we could not win the first test.
Furthermore, he said all is not lost yet and said that the series is not over yet and we will bounce back. These guys have won matches for Pakistan back at home.”
However, Waqar said he had no idea about the pitch as the team and its management had just arrived at the stadium and he didn’t have a look at it.
Talking about shadab’s khan’s performance in the first test. Waqar said that “I reckon Shadab’s performance with the bat was quite impressive as he scored in both innings. Although, he was not fully used as a bowler but overall his performance was good. The final decision, however, rests with Misbah,”
About losing the first Test, Waqar said it was utterly disappointing. “I reckon we won more sessions of that Test and we really played well but we lost one session at a wrong time and it cost us the game,”.
