Misbah hits out at former Pak cricketers for criticizing seniors

Islamabad, Sept 11 : Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq has hit out at former cricketers who criticized the selection of the national team for the ongoing series in Zimbabwe, and said that seniors have a crucial role in the side.


According to The Daily Times, Misbah expressed that there were some 'dirty' people in Pakistan cricket who should think before talking about having more youngsters in the side.

The captain said that even in the first Test, it was the seniors who rescued the team from troublesome situations.

Misbah also insisted that experts should not try to compare Pakistan youngsters with Indian youngsters, the report said.

He pointed out that India was playing much more cricket compared to Pakistan and that was why the youngsters were developing and progressing into good players much faster, the report added.

Misbah said that Pakistan was short of cricket in many ways as neither did it have an IPL or regular tours for the A teams and international teams were also not touring the country since 2009, the report further said.
