ICL: Indian Cricket League

Entire team responsible for Cup exit, says Sami


samiFast bowler Mohammad Sami said here on Friday that poor performance from all the World Cup team members caused Pakistan’s early exit from the quadrennial event in the West Indies.

Talking to reporters after appearing before the performance evaluation committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), which has been assigned to probe into Pakistan’s World Cup debacle, the Karachi-based seamer said the players failed in all the departments of the game in the Caribbean.

“Our batting, bowling and fielding, all were miserable in our short stint in the West Indies and all the team members are responsible for the team’s early exit from the event,” he said.

Sami said the tracks (pitches) in the West Indies were not the issues because of which Pakistan lost their matches saying they were the same for all the competing teams in the competition.

He said he has put forward his advice to the performance evaluation committee for improving domestic structure in order to lift cricketing standards.
