Misbah Ul Haq was not pleased with his team’s batting efforts in the third and final test. Pakistan has lost the game by 5 wickets. Misbah in the post-match presentation ceremony said that his side lost the chance of creating history.
If Pakistan had won this game then they could have become the second only team to have won a bilateral series winning all the official games. Pakistan won 8 of the 9 games played against West Indies across all three formats here in the UAE in this series.
Misbah said that it is a wakeup call for his side. Their batting needs to prove itself because in the next 2 series the pitches will not that much batting friendly. Pakistan will be travelling to New Zealand and then Australia after this.
Misbah also said that apart from batting the wicket also surprised him. There was no turn on it even on day five. This wicket put Yasir into the grinder. He was getting no turn and bounce. Hence the West Indian batsmen played him with ease. This was another major thing which Pakistan did not pick up. The wicket supported batting throughout the 5 days. Pakistan needs to regroup here for sure.
