Being an MBA in HR and majored in Training and Development, I certainly know the importance of motivating others, but in Pakistani cricket team's scenario, that's not the case, because first of all team doesn't need motivation but the combination is not set, like I've always been critical, unlike other teams they played musical chair game, because of which no stability there.
Secondly, bad planning because the game where Yasir Shah could had been rested, he was on and the game where he could had played his part, he was rested.
Thirdly, when the team was in dismay, boh Ajmal and Hafeez can't play, so it was better had we incorporated some experience in Zulfiqar Babar alongside Yasir Shah and Lala. Here in this scenario we could had gambled with YS and ZB.
Fourthly, I'd have to agree with Shoaib Akhtar here because Pakistan needs someone who could stuck at one end and the other end it should accelerate. Misbah should incorporate himself in at 3 and Younis at 4, because if they stay longer, runs will start flow, though was a selfish innings but the quiet innings Misbah played against India is a good example that singles doubles and keep the scorecard revolving.
Fifth, why Nasir Jamshed is here? Ive seen some good stroke players that too lefties in Pakistani domestic, why not using them when they were at peak? Is this what merit all about?
My personal opinion but I'd like to shred coaching staff, Flower doing well (I am firm on my stance) if players aren't adapting to his tactics so players are to be blamed not the coach. We require people like Wasim and Mohsin Khan who have cricketing brains just like Allan Donald for South Africa and Prasad for India.
I must say Pakistan is the most under prepared team for this world cup. Giving the excuse I say what were the think tanks doing while they were about to announce the team? Even if the club team announces its team, it keeps the bench strength on standby, did we see the same for Pakistan when the team was announced? If they are taking salaries for 'serving Pakistan' so serve it na, why play with Pakistan, go to KPK and North Punjab, you'd find lanky fast bowlers with ample pace, Karachi is always being known for batsman, IF YOU WANT TO HAVE BATSMEN. Rest nepotism has ruined not only the team but overall the stature of once the great team which played semis of earlier world cups, won 92, finalists in 1999 and semi finalists in 2011 edition, it all went down the gutter because of these nepotistic funded morons and buffoons.
