Karachi: Taking responsibility for Pakistan's failure to defend the World Twenty20 crown, captain Mohammed Hafeez has pleaded with the fans to accept it gracefully and not react like "bad losers".
"We accept responsibility for playing poorly against the West Indies in the crucial match but we must also not be bad losers. They played better on that day to beat us," Hafeez told reporters at the airport after returning home from Dhaka. (Also read: Hafeez to blame for Pakistan's exit, says Razzaq)
