ISLAMABAD, Nov 2 (APP): Former Chief Selector Mohsin Hasan
Khan has said that skipper Misbah-ul-Haq is 100% fit and he should
continue playing till Australia series next year.
Mohsin said he agrees with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman
Shahryar Khan that Pakistan needs Misbah because “we have to play very
important series in the near future.”
“If a batsmen scores a hundred in one innings then he is a world
class batsmen but if the same batsman fails in next few innings then
the media starts criticizing the same player,” he said while talking
to a private news channel.
Mohsin said at the moment Pakistan need players like Misbah and
Younis Khan because they are the backbone of the team and they provide
stability and experience in the middle order. “Playing England in England
won’t be an easy task and players like Misbah and Younis will provide much
needed stability to the Pakistan Team,” he said.
Speaking about the Indo-Pak series, Mohsin said Shahryar Khan has
tried his level best for Indo-Pak series but Board of Control for Cricket
in India (BCCI) didn’t treat him properly.
Mohsin said Pakistan should play with India on level terms. “I
would have built a lobby against India stating that it is not safe to
hold World Twenty-20 2016 in India and would have asked the
International Cricket Council (ICC) to change the venue of the
tournament,” he said.
