As if the 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Australia was not embarrassing enough for the Pakistan cricket team, the former Aussies skipper Ian Chappell has now called on the Cricket Australia to stop inviting Pakistan for future tournaments unless they improve their performance.
Misbahs men were unable to change their poor record in Australia, despite a brave effort in the first Test match at the Gabba, the visitors were whitewashed as they were outmatched in all departments by the hosts.
Pakistan have now lost 12 Test matches on the trot in Australia, and somebodys got to give them a kick up the bum. Cricket Australia have got to start saying listen if things dont improve we will stop with the invites, said Chappell, reported ESPN.
Ian was of the view that the poor fielding by who feels Pakistans at the Melbourne Cricket Ground was a sign of things to come in the rest of the series, told ESPN.
You cant continue to [play poor] cricket. You cant bowl poorly, have conservative field placings and field sloppily and expect to play decent cricket in Australia, he added.
Furthermore, Chappell lashed out at Pakistan skipper Misbah ul Haq, saying that the captain lacked the leadership to his team.
A lot of their struggles were because they had no leadership. There was no inspiration from Misbah, so things have got to change in Pakistan.
