Pakistan still need to improve in Cricket
SPORTS NEWS/CHITTAGONG: Pakistan captain Misbahul Haq was a relieved man after his team pulled of a 58-run win in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) to sweep the series against Bangladesh 3-0.

The win, however, came after testing circumstances with Pakistan on the back foot before a 20-minute interruption when Bangladesh were well-placed at 69 for one in the 20th over chasing 178.

The hosts lost five wickets for 14 runs after the break and were all out for 119 with Misbah crediting the team’s resilience for the comeback, but also singling out batting as an area of improvement.

“This was a tough game,” said Misbah. “But when there’s self-belief you manage to get through. Bangladesh had lost only one wicket when the lights went out and we were feeling a bit low.

“But our coaches assured us the game was not over and one more wicket would bring us back. That is what happened.”

While the bowlers earned Pakistan their 28th win in 29 ODIs against Bangladesh, batting let the team down with only Umar Akmal, Younus Khan and Misbah reaching double figures.

Misbah was aware of the batting woes that also plagued  Pakistan in the first ODI. “Our bowlers did really well but we need to improve our batting.”
