“The team played good cricket against Australia and New Zealand,” Mani said, mentioning Pakistan’s recent victories against top two teams in the T20 series.
“I don’t understand why do the people start criticising the captain after one bad series,” he added. “God willing, he will lead the team in the world cup.”
