Injured Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez says Pakistan made several tactical errors during its World Cup loss to India on Sunday.
Hafeez, who was left out of Pakistan’s squad due to a calf injury, didn’t mix his words after questioning why young spearhead Nasir Jamshed did not open the bowling over Younus Khan.
“When you have asked for Nasir Jamshed because of his excellent one-day record against India, why not play him and why opt for a makeshift opener in such a big match,” Hafeez is quoted as saying by NDTV Sports.
Hafeez also believed the Pakistan coaching staff made an error by selected Umar Akmal as wicketkeeper instead of specialist gloveman Safaraz Ahemed.
“Similarly it was mistake to use Umar Akmal as a wicketkeeper. I would have gone with Sarfaraz Ahmed who is the only specialist keeper in the side,” he said.
His comments are not likely to be taken well by Pakistan selectors – has he shot himself in the foot?
