With the T20 world cup only a few months away, the limited overs series in particular is important for the green shirts as they hope to find an answer to the middle-order crisis. While explaining the situation, Pakistan’s head coach Misbah-ul-Haq in a recent interview said, “We have to view every game as important and improve our performance. England were a top team in difficult conditions, but we have to look at a roadmap for improvement. Of course, losses shatter your confidence, and we just have to try and build it back.

“The results before the England series were much improved, we won 3 series in a row. [Mohammad] Hafeez has not been doing as well as he did last year, and other middle-order players are struggling. Overall, the team is better but these two aspects of our game need to improve, (only) then we’d be in a much better position. The importance of three-dimensional players and the lower middle order is very important. Players like Hasan Ali and Shadab (Khan) and their performances are crucial, but the link with the middle order needs to be stronger.”
