KARACHI: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman expressed his disappointment over the 3-0 whitewash by Bangladesh but imposed that no panic button should be pressed before the series end, according to a press release. 

"We shall not be pressing any panic buttons but will wait for the tour’s end before engaging in a thorough review of all factors," said Shahryar Khan.

"Like all cricket fans in Pakistan, I am deeply disappointed at the ODI whitewash in Bangladesh. We are playing a highly proficient Bangladesh team that has improved by leaps and bounds over the past few years. Yet such a display was unanticipated.

"As Misbah has said earlier, this is a new and young team which will take time to gel together.

"Despite the losses, there have been some encouraging performances, notably by captain Azhar Ali, who has led by example, Mohammad Rizwan, Saad Nasim and Sami Aslam.

"We specially need to evaluate fitness and fielding issues and also the mental strength of our boys, which was found wanting.

"We remain high on the ICC’s Test and Twenty20 rankings but need to improve our ODI rating. I am sure given time this young team will show results.”
