Whatmore hints at revamping Pak Test side for SA series to put up 'better show'

Islamabad, Sept 23 (ANI): Pakistan coach Dav Whatmore has hinted at a possible overhauling of the Test side that will take on number-one ranked South Africa in the UAE next month.

According to The Dawn, Whatmore, who has faced severe criticism from former players and experts after Pakistan's losses in Zimbabwe, admitted that the tour had been 'embarrassing, upsetting and disappointing' but sounded confident of a turnaround against South Africa.

He said that all the three words described the way he felt after the defeat against Zimbabwe.

Whatmore, who is yet to get a Test series win under his belt since taking over last year, added that Brendan Taylor's men had prepared them well for the upcoming series and helped in highlighting Pakistan's weaknesses before the tough challenge ahead, the report said.

The coach said that captain Misbah's consistency in contributions during 2013 had been great and was second to none.

The two-Test series between Pakistan and South Africa begins October 14 in Abu Dhabi while the second match will be played in Dubai from October 23, the report added. (ANI)
