Pakistan Cricket: Is this even a team? Some are running here, some are running there… Foreign coach exposed Pakistan


New Delhi. Pakistan must have had high hopes from coach Gary Kirsten, who made India the world champion in 2011, when he/she added the South African legend to his/her team. Kirsten must have also joined Pakistan with great hopes because there is no dearth of talent in this team. But it did not take long for Kirsten to realize his/her mistake. Criticizing the Pakistan cricket team which has been eliminated from the T20 World Cup, coach Gary Kirsten said that there is ‘no unity’ in the team.

After losing to America and India, the Pakistan team managed to register hard-fought wins against Canada and Ireland. According to Pakistani media reports, the team’s head coach Gary Kirsten left no stone unturned in reprimanding the team after it was eliminated from the World Cup. A senior Pakistani journalist quoted Kirsten as saying, “There is no unity in the Pakistan team. They call it a team, but it is not a team. The players are not supporting each other. Everyone is different. I have worked with many teams, but I have never seen such a situation.”

‘Geo Super TV’ quoted sources as saying that Kirsten expressed displeasure over the fitness level of the players. The former South African opener also said that the team is far behind the rest of the world in terms of skill level.

After Pakistan’s defeat to India, Kirsten said that the team lost due to poor decision making. Kirsten had said, ‘This is definitely a disappointing defeat. I knew that a target of 120 would not be easy. If India has scored 120 runs, then it was not going to be easy. However, I feel that with six or seven overs remaining, the team’s score was 72 runs for two wickets. It is disappointing not to be able to get the match out of this situation.’

In this T20 World Cup, Pakistan suffered the biggest setback in the form of defeat against America. After the victory against Ireland on Sunday, Pakistan remained third in Group A with four points while India remained on top with seven points. America qualified for the Super Eight stage with five points after winning against Pakistan and Canada and the match against Ireland being cancelled.
