Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq has arrived in UAE where the Asia Cup 2018 is presently taking place. The former skipper is said to be unhappy with the performance that Sarfraz Ahmed’s men have put in and has hence decided to stay with the team for the virtual semi-final against Bangladesh and will return home only after the conclusion of the tournament after Friday’s final.
As per a report in Express.pk, Inzamam is unhappy with the team selections and wants to make sure that he puts his message across to the team management, the coach Mickey Arthur and the captain before they finalise on the playing XI for Bangladesh clash.
Pakistan had started the Asia Cup with a resounding 8-wicket victory over Hong Kong but have only seen their performance drop since then. A defeat to India in the subsequent group match saw them progress to the Super Four.
A victory over Afghanistan and a second defeat to Rohit Sharma’s Men in Blue kept their final chances in the balance, with a victory in the last Super Four clash against Bangladesh required to help them book a final date with India.
