Pakistan can still win T20 series, should learn from mistakes: Ramiz Raja

ISLAMABAD   –   Former Pakistani cricketer Ramiz Raja believed that Pakistan still had a chance to win the T20I series saying they  need to learn from their mistakes. “We can still give them props because the series is still alive, and they can learn from their mistakes. The middle-order has to bat better than this during run chases. It seemed like they were swinging in a desperate situation.” They have to back themselves and hit on balls that are in their zones. They could not  just close their eyes and swing for the fences thinking that it was a desperate situation, and he would still get a pat on the back for effort,” Raja said. “This should not be the case. If you want to be a big side while chasing, then you have to pick your moments. Senseless hitting increases pressure because wickets fall in the process while a new batsman would need time to settle in the middle,” he said in a Youtube video. “Pakistan’s bowling was not up to the mark since they conceded 200 runs in two games. They have to go back to the drawing board and make some changes. They have to make new strategies and pick themselves up.  They still have a chance to win this series which would be a great achievement.” He said Usman Qadir is present in the squad that is going to face a side with around two to three inexperienced batsmen. “Some don’t play spin well. They still didn’t think about attacking with two leg-spinners. This is why Pakistan sometimes pays a price because of its tactics, not because of the talent it has,” he said.
