Criticism hard to digest, but happy about team performance: Misbah

Captain says team is no longer unpredictable, and one of the most improved sides in the world.

LAHORE: Pakistan national cricket team skipper Misbahul Haq says their team is "now one of the most improved sides in world cricket."

Returning home victorious from Bangladesh on Saturday, Misbah told newsmen that over the past 18 months, Pakistan had the "highest win percentage among all the Test playing nations. We are an improving side and I think by winning the Asia Cup in Dhaka on Thursday we have also shed this tag of being an unpredictable side."

Misbah said he was satisfied with the team’s performance in the four-nation Asia Cup tournament. "Except for that one loss to India where their batsmen really played outstandingly, we did well as a team and we performed as a unit which is very satisfying."

Captain admitted that it was "difficult to digest harsh criticism after every defeat. It is not easy to forget the criticism but we are learning to take it in our stride and show our worth by our performances."
