Karachi: Pakistan team coach Dav Whatmore and manager Naved Cheema have held a closed-door meeting with senior members of the national team, currently in South Africa, in a bid to reverse the flow of poor results on the tour.
Sources close to the Pakistan team confirmed that the meeting was held last night at the team hotel in which only the senior players were invited by the manager and coach. "None of the junior players like Junaid Khan, Nasir Jamshed, Wahab Riaz, Asad Shafiq, Umar Akmal, Irfan were invited for the meeting," a source said.
Senior players -- captain, Misbah-ul-Haq, Muhammad Hafeez, Younis Khan, Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Malik, Kamran Akmal, Imran Farhat, Umar Gul and Saeed Ajmal -- attended the meeting. "Apparently the coach asked the players to outline the reasons they felt were responsible for the team's continuing poor performance in South Africa," the source said.
