LAHORE: Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Shahryar Khan on Tuesday pinned hope on last match of England Test series to square the series, ARY News reported.

“The best thing about our team is that it is in good spirit. Hopefully, they will perform well in Oval Test,” he said while talking to media in Lahore.

Pakistan are on England tour to play Test, ODI and T20 series. The hosts went 2-1 up with one to play in the series after coming from behind to win the third Test by 141 runs at Edgbaston on Sunday.

England are mulling about playing two spinners in the fourth Test against Pakistan to be held on August 15 at The Oval by handing a home debut to leg-break bowler Adil Rashid.

Shahryar termed poor batting show and lack of one bowler responsible for defeat in the third Test.

“We had four bowlers, while they had five bowlers which created the difference of runs otherwise Pakistan were going fantastic in the start,” he said.

He said some of our batsmen failed on fourth day which led to our defeat.

The chairman PCB said winning and losing was part of game and Misbah-ul-Haq’s captaincy had nothing to do with it. Misbah did his job very well.

To a query, he said he would personally tell Umer Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad to improve their discipline so that they could be considered to bring back in squad.

To another query, he said Pakistan would have to struggle harder in one-day series, because they were not good at it.
