Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed on Friday told a committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board that the performance of his side at the World Cup 2019 was satisfactory, Daily Jang reported.
Sarfaraz, under whose leadership Pakistan failed to make the semi-finals of the tournament held in England last month, made the remarks during a meeting of the PCB’s cricket committee.
His views were identical to what he had said immediately after returning to Pakistan last month following Pakistan’s exit.
Former chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq also appeared before the committee led by PCB Managing Director Waseem Khan. Other committee members such as Misbahul Haq, PCB Directors Mudassar Nazar and Zakir Khan were also in attendance, whereas legendary former pacer Wasim Akram was roped in via phone link.
Inzamam, as per the Urdu daily, presented a summary of the work done during his three-year tenure that came to a conclusion on July 31 after he decided against seeking an extension.
The batting legend said that young players were given a chance during his time in charge, adding that the team’s performance improved as well.
Meanwhile, head coach Mickey Arthur presented a report on the team’s performance and fitness.
The cricket committee, after incorporating and analysing the reports, is expected to present its recommendations to PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani.
