Australia tour will benefit Pakistan pacers, Waqar
Pakistan’s bowling coach Waqar Younis has said Pakistan’s pace attack will learn a lot from the ongoing tour of Australia, media sources say.
Pakistan recently suffered an innings and five-run loss in the first game of the two-match test series in Brisbane.
“Our lengths were not right, especially with the new ball. When we had the first new ball, I thought we bowled poorly,” Younis said after the series opener.
“Had we put the ball in the right areas, things might have been different. But we have a young attack and they got carried away (with the bounce on offer).”
The bowling coach says their team can benefit by learning from the other sides. “They’re going to learn a lot from this tour. We need to give them time to develop their game.”
The former fast-bowler further said that Mohammad Abbas has been winning matches for the side in the past, however, his recent performance has been below expectation.
“We’re not losing hope in him, he’s our main man. We’re going to have a really close look at him and hopefully, once we get to Adelaide, we’ll think about playing him.”
