Pakistan batsman Asad Shafiq admitted that his performance in the two-Test series was substandard, but called on the team’s fanbase to continue showing their support.
Shafiq was one of the few senior players in the team that was picked for the tour of England, but he failed to deliver at the crease as he was restricted to 91 runs, which included a half-century, at an average of 30.33.
Shafiq also admitted that he was gutted his side didn’t seize the opportunity to make history in England. Had Pakistan won or drawn the second Test at Headingley, they would have secured their first Test series win in England since 1996.
Instead, they were thrashed by an innings and 55 runs, which led to the series ending as a 1-1 draw.
