After wining Test series against South Africa, team's morale high: Misbah
LAHORE (92 News) - Pakistan cricket team's Head Coach Misbahul Haq on Tuesday said that the team's morale was high after whitewashing South Africa in the two-match Test series.
Talking to the media virtually, the head coach expressed hope that the team will continue its winning run in the T20 series. "This home series was very beneficial for us," he said. "For one, the team at home performs well in its own conditions and there is no pressure on them. Secondly, it provides an opportunity to develop the players," Misbah added.
The former Pakistan captain said he did feel pressure about whatever the cricket committee had said after the green shirts lost the away series to New Zealand recently. "The only pressure was of the team performing well and winning the Test series," he said, adding that credit for the series victory goes to the entire squad.
"The lower order played well. Bowlers and batsmen were performing well for over a time period but we weren't getting any success," he said. "Our fielding improved this Test series. We didn't miss any chances hence I believe our fielding made the difference."
