Captain Shoaib Malik and leading paceman Mohammad Asif also participated in the session that was aimed at preparing the players for the tough series. PCB’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) Shafqat Naghmi, chief selector Salauddin Ahmed, Director Cricket Operations Zakir Khan and coach Geoff Lawson were present.
The Board officials were upset at the way some of the senior players batted in the last one-dayer against South Africa. The players who participated in the session could not explain how the national team lost from a seemingly winning position.
“All the plus and minuses of the series were discuss in the session that was aimed at digging out the realities as to what happened and what should be the course of action for the coming series,”
At the meeting, the idea of making some changes in the team was also discussed.
“Though the selectors have already announced the one-day squad, some of officials were of the opinion that the changes could be made even at this stage.”
