Islamabad, Aug 20 : The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will hunt for details from the manager and coach of the national Under-19 team, that failed to go past the quarter-final stage in the World Cup after losing to archrivals India.
The Pakistan team was not only defeated by India during the ongoing event in Australia, but also lost a playoff match to West Indies and even to Bangladesh on Friday.
PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf said that while it was disappointing that the team couldn't reach the final, their performance was not that bad.
"But yes definitely the team went with great expectations but the results didn't match those expectations. When the team return we will seek reports from the management and try to find out what went wrong," The Daily Times quoted Ashraf, as saying.
India has now reached the final of the World Cup where they will play Australia on Sunday.
Pakistan lost to India after scoring a meager total of 137 on Monday.
Sources in the board said that the decision to bat first on a pitch freshened up by rains against India had raised questions which needed to be answered by manager Haroon Rasheed and coach Sabih Azhar. (ANI)
