Saeed Ajmal is highly disappointed with Pakistan's display in the Headingley Test that led them to suffer the historic Test series loss in England, saying "they could have done better" in the final Test.
Sarfraz Ahmed and his brigade made a superb comeback into the Test arena by winning the first Test by 9 wickets at Lord’s and were looking to replicate the Lord’s dominant show at the Headingley Cricket Ground in the second and final Test against England.
But lack of consistency in batting and partnerships put them behind the game at Headingley, eventually suffering a heavy defeat at the hands of hosts in the Headingley Test and lost the series.
As per reports in Daily Times, Ajmal said, “They know where they did badly and where they did well. But overall their performance was not satisfactory and they could have done better.”
Former Pakistani leg-spinner further added, “Pakistan have a huge number of former players and the current players should follow them and learn from them. They have to set their priorities that who they want to follow and what they want to learn from them. All former players are open to giving the required tips and training to the players but all depends on what they want to learn from whom and what are their priorities.”
Ajmal signed off by saying, “They only talked about the second innings that if they had a less lead then they would have done better. But in all fairness, they should’ve talked about the first innings where Pakistan did extremely poor and let themselves down.”
