Former off-spinner Tauseef Ahmed has launched a verbal attack against batting coach Mohammad Yousuf, asking whether he solved Pakistan’s middle order problems.
The issue with Pakistan’s middle order batsmen has been a lingering issue for quite some time and has become one of the team’s most notable weaknesses.
With speculation about Yousuf potentially becoming batting coach on a permanent basis, Tauseef wants him to answer why he hasn’t managed to fix one of the glaringly obvious problems the Pakistan team has.
“Are [the] middle order woes solved?” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
Pakistan just finished taking part in a seven-match T20 series against England, which they lost 4-3.
They will now be on their way to New Zealand to face the Black Caps and Bangladesh in a T20 tri-series, which will be held in Christchurch from October 7 to 14.
