Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq on Tuesday said that the series win against South Africa at home was a very important result for the team, particularly after their series drubbing in New Zealand earlier in the year.

He said that it was a very ‘satisfying’ victory for the players, the coaching staff and all of Pakistan in many ways.

“It was a very important series for Pakistan after the series against New Zealand. The confidence of the team was low, it was very important to perform in the series. And after a long time a top-class team came to Pakistan – that was also a major factor for Pakistan.

“And the performance in this series was important. Overall the weakness we had in New Zealand, the questions that were there, the performance was better. And that is why we have won the series 2-0. Very satisfying, for the team’s confidence, for the players’ confidence, it was very important, for the coaching staff, it was important for Pakistan as a whole,” Misbah-ul-Haq told reporters after the series win.

Pakistan were beaten very easily in the two-match Test series in New Zealand, losing by 101 runs in the first Test in Mount Maunganui, and that was followed by an innings defeat at Christchurch.

Continuity in team set-up is important, says Misbah

The role of many players and the coaching staff came under criticism after the disastrous series against the Kiwis.

On Tuesday, however, Misbah spoke about continuity in the team set-up and asked for a plan that looks at the betterment of the team in the long-run.

“There should be continuity. It isn’t like you would win every series, there would be ups and downs, one should look at it in the longer run.

“The combinations, the players, whether they are going on the right side, is there development, results, it would take a bit of time. Yes, changes have to be done but the changes need to be done for the sake of betterment,” Misbah added.
