“It is the system of nature that we win sometimes and lose also,” said the head coach, addressing a press conference after the third T20I of the seven-match series.
In response to a query about the middle order, he said, “This is the middle order of the Pakistani team. It is ours and we have to support it.”
Saqlain said, “By talking about the middle order so frequently, you are influencing our minds. By frequently referring to the middle order, you are undermining the players’ confidence in this manner.” He underscored the need for every Pakistani to repose trust in the skipper, coach and players.
The head coach said Pakistan triumphed yesterday, and they (England) made it today, so it shows the team will win whose plans work.
He said the Pakistani team consists of the best available players. “We should have faith in our players. We will have to repose this confidence in them,” he said. However, there are some concerns, and efforts are being made to do away with them, he said.
Saqlain said the Pakistan bowling appeared to be lacking a lot in the third match of the England series. “Our bowlers made a lot of mistakes. Our plans were not good, either,” he said.
