Former Australian great Greg Chappell has bashed the visiting Pakistan side for their performances Down Under in their on-going tour, asking Cricket Australia to stop inviting them. Chappell has criticized Pakistani skipper Misbah-ul-Haq for failing to provide inspiration or leadership to the team.
“You can’t continue to [play poor] cricket. You can’t bowl poorly, have conservative field placings and field sloppily and expect to play decent cricket in Australia,” Chappell added.
A lot of their struggles were because they had no leadership.
Chappell has also criticized Misbah-ul-Haq, who has struggled with the bat on the tour, for failing to provide any sort of inspiration to his team and has asked for a change in captaincy.
“A lot of their struggles were because they had no leadership. There was no inspiration from Misbah, so things have got to change in Pakistan,” he said.
Pakistan will now face Australia in five ODIs with the first match scheduled to be played on January 13 at Brisbane.
