Mohsin Khan still perplexed over slump in performance

By Muhammad Asif Khan

KARACHI: The former coach of the Pakistan Cricket team, Mohsin Hassan Khan is full of praise for the green-shirts on back to back victories in the Asia Cup, however he has not been able to figure out the reason behind the sudden slump in the team’s performance after the historic Test whitewash against England.  “The performance of the team is on the up since last 18 months or so, but what happened to the players after the test whitewash against England is still a mystery for me”, said Mohsin Khan while talking to this correspondent for News One TV.

Mohsin Khan, a former right-handed opening batsman, was appointed chief selector in March 2010 and later, after Waqar Younis’s resignation, was given the role of an interim coach. After the series against England in the U.A.E, the Pakistan Cricket Board replaced Mohsin Khan with Dev Whatmore.

“The players are gaining the lost touch in the Asia Cup, which is a good sign, however still a lot to be done. All in all every player should realise his responsibility and continue with the fighting spirit and killer instinct which was their forte not long ago”, concludes Mohsin Khan, the right-handed opening batsman who has played 48 test matches for Pakistan.
