Pakistan won a thrilling match in the last match of the last T20 of the series. He could not win Bangladesh with three wickets in the last over by Mahmudullah. However, the head coach of the Pakistan team praised the team even though they could not win.
Shahidul made 7 runs with no ball from the 19th over. If it weren’t for the no ball, maybe the scene of the match could have been different. As there was no option in hand, the Bangladesh captain himself picked up the ball to make the last over. He turned the match around with the first three wickets. Iftikhar regained control of the match with a hat trick.
However, the main event of the match is over. After releasing the last ball, Batter Nawaz said he was not ready. That ball hits the stamp. Mahmudullah could have applied if he wanted. Pakistan won the third match by hitting four in the last ball. Pakistan’s head coach Saqlain praised Mahmudullah for handling the situation so well.
At the end of the match, the head coach of Pakistan said that the match was over. Our boys have been able to hold the pressure of the match. I want to give credit to Bangladesh. Especially Mahmudullah, the way he bowled in the last over and handled the situation.
Pakistan had already won the previous two matches and won the series. That is why the Pakistan team management brought multiple changes in the XI in the last match. Several tested performers were rested and placed in the XI without a chance. The head coach of Pakistan is very happy that he got the opportunity to use it properly.
About the young players in the team, Saqlain Mushtaq said, “It is a great thing for Pakistan to have this kind of depth in the team. The boys on the bench are working hard and pushing each other to get a place in the team.
Former legendary spinner Saqlain Mushtaq has been appointed as Pakistan’s head coach for the upcoming T20 World Cup. Besides, Shahid Aslam will be the assistant coach with Mushtaq. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) made the announcement in an official statement on Saturday (October 9th).
Earlier, after the resignations of Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis, it was rumored that the PCB was going to appoint Matthew Hayden as head coach and Vernon Philander as bowling coach in the T20 World Cup. But in the end, Australian legend Batter Hayden has been appointed batting consultant and Philander has been appointed bowling consultant.
Saqlain Mushtaq has been in talks since Misbah’s resignation. Supporters also expressed their desire to appoint their country’s legendary spinner as the head coach of the World Cup. A few days ago, Mushtaq was appointed as the interim coach for the Pakistan-New Zealand series. However, the bilateral series was ruined when the Kiwis did not play due to security concerns.
Pakistan cricket legend Saqlain Mushtaq has many records associated with this name. He is the highest wicket-taker in a single calendar year, the first of 250 wicket-takers in the fewest matches in one-day cricket.
Saqlain took over as interim coach after Misbah-ul-Haq left the post. His job was to coach the Pakistan team in the series against New Zealand. But as the New Zealand series was canceled, he did not handle the responsibility of the coach. This time it is his responsibility to guide Pakistan on the World Cup stage.
Meanwhile, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) received bad news the day after Pakistan made some big changes in the T20 World Cup squad. Shoaib Maqsood dropped out due to injury. Instead, the PCB took Shoaib Malik in the team this time.
