Islamabad, Feb 28: All rounder Shoaib Malik has claimed Pakistan has the ability to bounce back from their Test humiliation against South Africa in their upcoming one-day series.
Malik said that cricket is an unpredictable game and once a team encounters a bad patch it becomes difficult to come out of it, however, the former captain is confident Pakistan will come back all guns blazing, the Express Tribune reports.
Malik said unfortunately they had a bad start in the Test series and they could not get out of it, adding Pakistan has a good Test side but things did not work out in South Africa for them, but now they need to move on and try to reverse the results in the one-day series, although it will be a big challenge.
The all-rounder said Pakistan possess a good record in Twenty20s (T20) and ODIs and are capable of producing unexpected results, therefore they can pose a strong challenge for South Africa.
Malik, who is now considered only for T20 or ODI matches, said the coming series is also a personal challenge for him.
Malik also claimed that people needed to support the Pakistan team despite its whitewash in the Tests. (ANI)
