KARACHI - Former players Friday blamed Pakistan's failure to make the most of their chances for their 1-0 defeat to Sri Lanka, which ended the side's two-year unbeaten run in Test series.
"Pakistan didn't read the pitches correctly and that's why they didn't select the right combination." He said Misbah was short of ideas for how to use his bowlers in Sri Lankan conditions.
Former batsman Basit Ali blamed off-spinner Saeed Ajmal for being ineffective. "In my opinion Ajmal did not do as much as he should have done," said Ali. "
That's why I believe Whatmore needs a bowling coach for his assistance.” Former paceman Jalaluddin praised left-arm fast bowler Junaid Khan as the find of the series. "Junaid really impressed in this series. He showed a lot of progress and can go places in the future."
