Misbah urges Pak to improve bowling, fielding skills in upcoming games against Sri Lanka

Karachi, Dec 20 : Pakistani Test and ODI captain Misbah-ul Haq has urged his team to improve their bowling and fielding skills, although he hailed the batsmen for their performance during his side's hard-fought 11-run win over Sri Lanka in the first day-night international in Sharjah on Wednesday.


Pakistan was lifted by a return-to-form 122 by Mohammad Hafeez and 73 by Sohaib Maqsood as well as debutant opener Sharjeel Khan's 61.

According to the Express Tribune, Misbah said that his team had put up a good show in batting with Hafeez leading the way, although he admitted that they need to improve their bowling and fielding in the next games.

Misbah further said that the ODI was a close game in the last few overs, adding that they managed to earn a victory because of their positive approach in the game.

The remaining matches would be played in Sharjah on Sunday followed by two games in Abu Dhabi next Wednesday and Friday, the report added.
