Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq on Thursday blamed the team’s first-round exit from the World Cup on the poor performances of the senior players.
“He said the senior players had not delivered as expected although the bowlers did their best,” a member of the committee told Reuters.
Pakistan were knocked out of the tournament after they were beaten by hosts West Indies and debutants Ireland in two of their three group-phase matches and Inzamam relinquished his captaincy before flying back home.
Their coach, Bob Woolmer died the day after the Ireland defeat. Jamaican police are investigating his death as a murder.
Inzamam also stressed that the standard of domestic cricket needs to be improved if Pakistan are to regain their stature in world cricket.
“He said there was need to have more quality cricket instead of quantity. And unless the domestic structure was improved Pakistan would always struggle to be consistent,” the committee member said.
The committee will also question other players, team officials, journalists and board administrators before submitting its findings in a month’s time.
