‘Learn from India, create a bigger pool of players’: Shoaib Malik’s advice PCB

Written by Toshi Pawar

Former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik has suggested the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should take a cue from the Indian cricket and make a bigger pool in every format.

“In this World Cup, India were covered from all the aspects. I am not talking about only three departments — bowling, batting and fielding,” Malik said on A Sports.

“They have suffered injuries as well but they kept their plan B ready. Moving forward, having a pool of players is going to be most important. Pool of players in every format and they should get equal chance so that when the opportunity comes, they are ready.

“We do go in the rebuilding process, but we don’t stick to our own decisions. We don’t work consistently on our decisions,” he added.

Malik’s co-panelist and former teammate, Misbah suggested the inability to take constructive criticism when team is doing well has cost them badly.

“After winning every series and food performances, we are not ready to hear anything about improvement. I am not only talking about the players, it is overall,” said Misbah.
