While speaking in Pakistan Cricket Board’s podcast Misbah said, “Criticism is justified. People criticize us because they believe in our ability and potential. Our team showed that potential in phases. We were down and out in the first Test, yet we fought back and brought it till the last five overs. We almost saved that Test from nowhere, which gave people expectations for the next Test. However, if your performance goes down from there, then the criticism is completely justified”.
