Inzamam optimistic Pak will bounce back against England

Updated: Jul 28, 2016 15:05 IST

Karachi, July 28 (ANI): Following a massive defeat in the second Test against England, Pakistan chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq is confident that his side would surely bounce back in the upcoming matches.

The Misbah-ul-Haq-led side suffered a huge 330-run defeat in the second Test, thus allowing the hosts to level the four-match series 1-1.

Pakistan won the opening match by 75 runs at Lord's.

Expressing confidence on his side's strong comeback, Inzamam believes that his players would improve as they get more used to these conditions.

The 46-year-old insisted his side's victory at Lord's clearly depicts they are capable of winnings against tough opposition and in foreign conditions, the Dawn reports.

Inzamam also reflected his views on skipper Misbah-ul-Haq, who was the third highest scorer in the ongoing Test series after Joe Root and Alastair Cook.

Lavishing praise on Misbah, Inzamam insisted that he sees no reason to drop the latter for upcoming tours to New Zealand and Australia after looking at the way he is playing.

Pakistan will now aim to fight back when they take on England in the second Test starting at Edgbaston Cricket Ground on August 3. (ANI)
