Coach hopeful Pakistani team to comeback in World Cup’s next matches

CHRISTCHURCH: Coach of Pakistan cricket team and former legendary bowler Waqar Younis hoped that his team would come back in the World Cup despite a defeat in very first match against arch-rivals India.

The coach declared an inability to handle big-match pressure cause of the team defeat against India.

Talking to media persons he said that “But we have to realise that it’s just the start and there are more games to play and we will come back in the matches ahead.”

Waqar repeated his team was not amongst the title favourites, a statement which he gave before the departure for New Zealand last month.

The former legend said that “Unfortunately our batting did not click,”

“A target of 300 runs in Australia and New Zealand is chaseable, this has become the norm, a par total, and we have to chase down 300 in games ahead,” said Waqar.

“We know the importance of the game so we will try to have a positive frame of mind and do well,” said Waqar,.

The coach also admitted that experimenting with Younis Khan as an opener had failed.

For the reason to send Younis khan as an opener the coach said “It’s not too tough to drop a senior player but in a tournament like the World Cup you try to use maximum experience.”

“When we used Younis at number three or four he was not scoring runs so as per the requirement we used him as an opener but it didn’t work.”
