Lahore:Promising a "more lively track" for the second Test, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan on Saturday urged his demoralised players to play to their potential and bounce back into the three-match series against India.

Shaharyar also said that instead of blaming the Multan turf for the debacle, the team should give credit to the Indians who showed a lot of discipline in the match.

"We should not blame the track in Multan for the defeat. We should give credit to the Indian players, they played well and showed a lot of discipline. But there is nothing to get disheartened, victory and defeat is a part of the game," he said in Lahore.

While promising a "more lively track" for the second Test, he said the Pakistani team had "the potential to fight back. I hope you will display your fighting qualities during the second Test".

Shaharyar also said that the PCB has decided on what action it would take against former captain Rashid Latif who made match-fixing allegations after the hosts lost the fourth One-day International against India in Lahore on March 21.

"We have decided what action we will take against him, we will announce it tomorrow," he said.
