KARACHI: Former Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik said in an interview to a private TV channel that Misbahul Haq will need support from the senior players in the team if the men in green are to stand any chance of winning the 2015 World Cup, reported Press Trust of India.
“I would say Misbah is 50-50 as captain,” said Malik.
“Fifty percent weak in taking aggressive decisions and fighting for his players. Senior players like Younis Khan, Shahid Afridi and Muhammad Hafeez will have to advise him on the field and help him take positive decisions if we are to do well in this World Cup.
“I have been told he is not able to fight for his players enough. As a captain you have to fight for the players you have faith in. They then repay you with their top performances and that is good for any team.
