Misbah disappointed at West Indies downfall
SKIPPER Misbah-ul-Haq showed disappointment over the downfall of oncemighty West Indies after Pakistan achieved a series-clinching win in the second Test in Abu Dhabi yesterday.
Pakistan thumped West Indies by 133 runs on the fifth and final day to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
The defeat is West Indies’ 19th in their last 29 Tests since November 2013, having won only four and drawn the remaining six.
“That’s bit disappointing and if you see their strength in international cricket they were always a force but now they are having a downfall,” said Misbah after Pakistan’s victory in Abu Dhabi.
“They are a young side with some players performing well in bits and pieces at the moment.
“They will become a good side but at the moment they are lacking experience.
Everyone wants to see a strong West Indies side like we had in the past. Right now it’s really a big disappointing factor for all of their fans.”
West Indies now face the prospect of a whitewash in the Tests, with the third and final match starting in Sharjah from Sunday.
