Lahore: Despite the poor performance in the Junior World Cup, head coach Ijaz Ahmed is keen to continue the work, seeking time to improve the results.
Ijaz Ahmed, the head coach of the national U-19 team who beat India in the semi-finals of the Junior World Cup, told media at Gaddafi Stadium that he took third position in the event, won all matches, India in the semifinals. There was a big uproar against the players, the players came under pressure, they were told to play like a normal match but that didn’t happen.
He said that I could guide the players and not play with my own pad. If the match against Bangladesh was a rainy season, then New Zealand would face in the semifinals. Haider and Rohil Nazir could not perform as I expected. It happens in cricket, is moving in the right direction, my coaching team has lost only one match in the last 6 months.
Ejaz Ahmed said that flaws are in sight, I know where to take the team, so I have to give him some time to work, Qasim Akram and Harris could join the national team instead of Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez. Yes, the PCB requested a 4-month camp, and foreign tours must also be arranged in order for harmony with foreign conditions.
He said that Naseem Shah was lacking, happy that he performed well for the senior team, the hat-trick on flat wickets at a young age is a great honor.
