Sri Lanka v Pakistan, 1st Test, Galle 'We have a reply for Rangana Herath this time' – Misbah-ul-Haq
Pakistan were fixed by Rangana Herath a year ago when the left-arm spinner took 23 wickets in just two Tests, as the guests disintegrated to lose both the matches. Factually, Pakistan are the second group, among the main eight groups, with the most exceedingly terrible batting normal against left-arm spinners in the most recent ten years. Their chief Misbah-ul-Haq said his side won't cede against Herath this time.
"We have a response for Hearth this time as everyone is buckling down on the best way to protect him," Misbah said. "In the past we truly played him well aside from in the last arrangement in Sri Lanka… at times bowler takes the advantage, or now and then batsman. Be that as it may, we are looking on an arrangement on the most proficient method to handle him and how we ought to put forth a concentrated effort against him. We fought on the grounds that he got a decent hold of the conditions and it’s critical for us to play him well to show signs of improvement result. The more we play him well, more we have an opportunity to improve against them."
Pakistan last won and arrangement in Sri Lanka in 2006 and from that point forward haven't won a solitary Test either, with five misfortunes and three draws. "It's commonly extreme for any group to win here as the twist is the main distinction," Misbah said. "Before they had [Muttiah] Muralitharan, their driving wicket-taker, who did ponders for them and now Herath. So the twist rocking the bowling alley is the primary reason we have been battling. It's imperative for us to arrangement [well] with twist on this visit to make the best result. Taking 20 wickets here is additionally one sympathy toward us and we are working around there to do something else this time."
A year ago Pakistan scored 451 in the first innings in Galle, yet Herath invoked six wickets on the fifth day that swung the amusement far from the guests. That was the 12th annihilation for any group that had posted 450 or additionally batting 1st in a Test, as Pakistan endeavored to square their path, just to lose nine wickets by the last session to set Sri Lanka a vulnerable objective of 99.
"Last time we played exceptionally well, particularly in the first innings and some place in the center we thoroughly considered the amusement was however it was a major mix-up to feel that way," Misbah reviewed. "It was a message for us not to lose fixation as in Test cricket one great innings can change everything and in the event that you truly need to win against Sri Lanka, you can't bear to give numerous opportunities to them and simply attempt to be there constantly."
Pakistan are without the administrations of their pro spinner Saeed Ajmal. With him being dropped, the weight slides to the generally unpracticed legspinner Yasir Shah and left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar. Both will bowl against an adversary that is great in playing twist, however the commander is hopeful about getting the best out of the spinners.
"Number [of matches or wickets] may not be great but rather whatever they have played so far they have done well," Misbah said in respects to Shah and Babar. "Clearly this time they are going to play against a rival who is great in playing twist and this will be a test for them also. Be that as it may, this is over an open door for them to get them set up and I am confident the way they are bowling right now they are without a doubt going to do well. Our definitive objective is to win and enhance our exhibitions and I have best players with me to accomplish the objective
