PCB must set high standards for players to represent country: Ex-cricketers

Karachi, Mar. 26 : Expressing disappointment with the performance of the Pakistan cricket team in South Africa, the country's former cricketers have said there is a need for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to set high standards for national representation.

Pakistan lost the five-match one-day series 3-2 in Benoni on Sunday, following their 3-0 rout in the Tests. They managed to win the Twenty20 series 1-0 only after the first match was washed out.

Former captain Zaheer Abbas said the tour was disappointing and added that the poor Test performance was reflected in the one-day matches.

Abbas, however, defended coach Dav Whatmore and there was a need to keep patience with him.

Former captain and wicket-keeper Rashid Latif called on the team management to analyse the tour impartially to resolve underlying problems.
