Karachi [Pakistan], Sept.4 (ANI): Pakistan bowling coach Azhar Mahmood has called on the team to learn a lesson from England if they want to stage their revival in ODI cricket.

Pakistan, who are currently placed at lowly ninth spot in the ODI rankings, are facing a danger of failing to qualify automatically for the 2019 World Cup in England.

While calling on his side to play a bit more positive cricket, Mahmood observed that Pakistan would continue to make mistakes until they would change their mentality, the Dawn reported.

The 41-year-old urged his side to showcase similar kind of turnaround as England had shown since their embarrassing first-round exit at last year's 50-over World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Pakistan will now play their fifth and final ODI in Cardiff today before playing a lone T20 international in Manchester on Wednesday.

They will return to England for next year's Champions Trophy and Mahmood, who himself is a veteran of several seasons in English county cricket, is hopeful to see Pakistan learning quickly from their recent defeats.(ANI)
