Pakistani Headcoach unveils team strategy for upcoming England tour

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan cricket team head coach Misbah-ul-Haq doesn't want to try any more experiments with the team during the upcoming England tour.

Haq says the time has come to get "serious" and carry forward only those cricketers into the "tough" series who have realistic chances of playing for the country, especially in the T20 World Cup.

“The white-ball series against England is tough and so are other series coming up including the T20 World Cup. If the PSL goes ahead, we would be having an opportunity to look into backup and select the best for coming international commitments,” he said.

The Pakistan head coach said the focus will be on fielding the best playing XI in each match.

“The touring squad will contain only those players who would have a genuine case to play. But on my own I cannot take such decisions. The selection committee is to guide us. The team management only wants to have the best backup for future series,” he said.

Haq hoped for the "best" team for the England tour, saying that Pakistan included some players without a "genuine case" on the SOuth Africa tour because of the coronavirus pandemic.
