ICL: Indian Cricket League

Pakistan humiliated, again

Written by Kashif Aziz on February 16th, 2006   (215 views)

Loosing 3 matches in a row is too much. Inspite of all the high claims and boasts of ‘bouncing back into the series’ by Inzamam-ul-Haq, his XI failed miserably against Rahul Dravid and company in the fourth one day internatioal, loosing the series in the process.

This is the time to take a step back and ponder where we went wrong. Was it the batting, bowling, fielding or the captaincy that nose dived. Why the senior players, who were supposed to lead from the front, succumbed and failed miserably. Why there were so many experiments when all that was required was some common sense and positive attitude towards the game.

Inzimam should also be held accountable of not understanding the laws of the game. He failed to utilize the benefit of Supersub properly. Taking Imran Farhat as supersub and calling him to bat at number 6 was a stupid thing to accept from a seasoned captain. Kamral Akmal was sent to open when the ball was seaming.
