Kingston, Aug 19 (IANS) Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan admitted on Thursday that his team has failed to capitalise on opportunities overseas. Pakistan had lost the first Test against West Indies by one wicket earlier this week.
“It is true that we have not been able to capitalise on winning situations overseas. We are concentrating on ironing out those flaws. The boys are working hard and gelling well. Fielding is one area where we need to perform well and I’m sure we will get that done. We’re confident of doing enough hard work to get the results,” said Rizwan to media on the eve of the second Test that begins on Friday.
Pakistan had managed to make a small target of 168 runs look difficult. When they picked the ninth wicket, Windies still needed 17 runs. However, the last wicket pair of Kemar Roach and Jayden Seales carried the host through to a thrilling win.
“Quite a few edges didn’t go to hand and we weren’t good in the field at certain periods,” Rizwan added.
“But the boys put their best effort and we’re confident of bouncing back in the next game which is a crucial game for us. Hopefully, we can perform well and level the series.”
