Shan Masood’s decision to delay Aamer Jamal’s bowling should have been made earlier – Mohammad Hafeez

1 min read

In Sydney, Pakistan reeling from 3-0 series loss, head home to months of soul-searching. Pakistan’s Shan Masood may have excellent communication skills, but his tactical decisions were questioned in the final Test. Despite Australia being set to win the final Test, Aamer Jamal, the series’ joint-leading wicket-taker, wasn’t included by the Pakistan side until after lunch. This was a controversial move, with Mohammad Hafeez distancing himself from the decision while also backing Masood’s on-field calls.
Ultimately, the decision to overlook Jamal was just one aspect of an error-ridden game for Pakistan, who lost crucial moments and ultimately suffered an 8-wicket defeat. Pakistan’s continuing struggles were reflected in their fielding, and Hafeez called for improvements in this area. Despite signs of friendly relationships between the two teams, Hafeez admitted Pakistan must learn from their mistakes and improve their performance on the field.
