‘That really affected our chances in NZ’

There could be changes within the team and the coaching staff as Pakistan prepare for the home series against SA

Misbah-ul-Haq, the Pakistan coach, was left to rue an age-old Pakistan shortcoming after a third successive Test series loss to New Zealand: dropped catches. Pakistan missed eight chances in the second Test in Christchurch, as well as a couple of more difficult ones at Mount Maurangui in the first. They ranged from the straightforward to the half-chance but all of them were dropped, and given that Kane Williamson was on the receiving end of this generosity on at least four occasions, the 2-0 scoreline is perhaps little surprise. The loss also means that Pakistan have now not beaten New Zealand in a Test series for a decade.

“I think the biggest thing in front of us, that we have seen in the past with Pakistan cricket as well, is our dropped chances,” Misbah told the PCB podcast after the series. “I think that has really affected our chances in this series. We missed a lot in both Tests, in which if we had grabbed them, we could have taken the Test further, but we missed them. We need to work on that.”
