Misbah tips for England revival – Cricket News Update
Pakistani skipper,, has offered his sympathy to the under fire English contingent, following their fourth consecutive Test defeat, which has put their No.1 status up for grabs.
The Poms suffered a humiliating 3-0 whitewash at the hands of Misbah-ul-Haq’s led at the Galle International Stadium.
This has put their No.1 ranked Test status in jeopardy and a defeat in the final game of their tour of Sri Lanka will see them drop to second, with all set to claim the coveted top spot. However, the 37-year-old Men In Green skipper has backed
the Englishmen to come good in the all important match, keeping in mind the quality they have at their disposal.
“ has a top class bowling attack and when you have quality bowlers at your disposal you can always make a strong comeback in any conditions,” said Misbah.
The right-handed veteran offered some advice to his counterpart, Andrew Straus, by commenting that England need to change their strategy and focus on one session rather than the whole game.   
“They lost to Sri Lanka in one session. When we played them it was a session-to-session battle for us because we knew they were a dangerous side and their bowlers were very good,” claimed Misbah.
The major hindrance for the Poms has been adapting to diverse conditions where they have failed to deal with the slow, turning nature of the tracks of the sub-continent. However, Misbah reckons that pitches in Sri Lanka are not difficult for batting and
therefore has faith in the visitors to come back strongly.
"The pitches in Dubai when we played them were more difficult for batting. The pitches are better in Sri Lanka so England can come back," added Misbah.
Misbah further highlighted that the other major reason for the disappointing displays from the No.1 ranked side is mainly attributed to their inability to handle top class spin. Also he pointed out that with the Poms visiting the sub-continent after fairly
long gaps; it makes it difficult for them to adjust to the surroundings.
