Pakistan’s huge loss is ‘shambolic’: Javed Miandad
22 February 2015, Nirapad News: Former captain and coach Javed Miandad says Pakistan’s huge loss against the West Indies in Cricket World Cup on Saturday was “shambolic.”
While writing at the tournament’s website Miandad says, “Shambolic is a mild word, it really hurts to see the planning of Pakistan’s think-tank.”
Fast bowler Jerome Taylor’s triple strike left Pakistan lurching at 1-4 in pursuit of 311-run target before the team was dismissed for 160 in 39 overs.
Miandad says, “there were no king cobras on the pitch, It was simply game, set and match at one for four after Pakistan’s top order was rolled over by Taylor.”
Pakistan lost its opening match to arch rival India last Sunday and will take on Zimbabwe, United Arab Emirates, South Africa and Ireland in the remaining group matches.
