Pakistan has copped a lot of criticism for their dismal performance during the Test series in Australia where they were handed a 2-0 hammering by the hosts. The inability of Pakistan’s inexperienced pace attack has particularly attracted scathing remarks, with critics questioning the logic of persisting with such young faces in the lineup.
Pakistan bowling coach Waqar Younis has, however, jumped to the defense of the likes of Muhammad Musa and Naseem Shah and stated that fans needed to tone down their harsh comments.
Waqar asserted that the dynamic quicks will only get better with age and will be more challenging to face once they gain experience.
“Yes, I admit that we didn’t get the sort of performances or results we wanted from them. But for teenagers, you tend to be unable to maintain the line and length you need to bowl in Test matches. I think once they play a few matches more over a period of a year they will get better and Shaheen is an example of this,” Waqar said in the Pakistan Cricket Board’s podcast.
