Karachi: There is no need for Pakistan to press the panic button following the morale-shattering defeat against New Zealand but the skipper must have plan B ready if pre-planned things go wrong, fast bowling great Wasim Akram said on Wednesday.
"I think we lost the match when New Zealand very intelligently took their batting power-play. Our think-tank panicked and exhausted the overs of all the main bowlers including our best bowler Umar Gul and that led to mayhem," Akram said.
"I think there is a clear need for the captain to handle the pressure on the field when the situation changes. At times I get the feeling that everything is decided before hand and when things to start go wrong there is no change of mind or the inclination to take decisions as the situation warrants," he told Geo Super Channel.
