'Team management has failed completely'

Former Pakistan leg-spinner Abdul Qadir has lashed out on the Pakistan management team for Pakistan's below par performance in the Test and one-day series in England.

Qadir believes poor planning and bad management is one major reason for Pakistan's ordinary performance in the England tour so far.

He also said that the lack of a game plan and inappropriate selection of the team were reasons behind Pakistan"s failure against England in the ongoing ODI series.

“I don"t think it is the players who should be blamed for the below par performance in the ongoing ODI series. It is the team management who has completely failed the side," The News quoted Qadir, as saying.

Qadir believes Kamran Akmal should be sent lower down the order to play a finisher's role, and he added that Fawad Alam should be sent up the order as he is incapable of scoring some quick boundaries.

He described pacer Mohammad Irfan as crude and said he needed some more time to get his talent polished.

“He is not yet ready for international matches and he need to learn few more things. He may prove himself an asset for the country in the coming years but right now he is not ready," Qadir said.

Qadir also said that he has been calling for a major change in the team ahead of the World Cup.
