Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has slammed the 'weak' middle-order of Pakistan after the Men in Green could only manage to score 149 against Zimbabwe in the 1st T20I.
Inzamam raises concerns over Pakistan's weak middle-order

Apart from Mohammad Rizwan's 82*, there were no substantial contributions from Pakistan side whatsoever. Although Pakistan won the match eventually, Inzamam wasn't impressed with the way the middle-order of Pakistan threw their wickets away.

“The weak link in this Pakistan side is its middle-order, which needs a lot of improvement. It looks as if the tailenders start coming after the number three position,” said Inzamam.

While praising the top order of Pakistan which has been scoring runs consistently of late, Inzi also urged the team management to bring the best out of the struggling middle-order.

“The good thing at the moment is that Pakistan’s top-order is doing really well or else winning matches, with this weak middle-order, would have been very difficult. The players need to realize their responsibility and quickly learn from their mistakes,” he added.

The former chief selector added that as soon as the team starts losing, the focus will turn towards the non-performing players and it will put the team management under a lot of pressure.

“Right now, Pakistan team is winning but if they don’t the pressure on the players will increase significantly. Team management also has experienced players who need to focus on this area,” Inzi said.
