Pak should learn from England to make revival in ODIs, says Azhar Mahmood

Karachi [Pakistan], Sept.4 : Pakistan bowling coach Azhar Mahmood has called on the team to learn a lesson from England if they want to stage their revival in ODI cricket.

Pakistan, who are currently placed at lowly ninth spot in the ODI rankings, are facing a danger of failing to qualify automatically for the 2019 World Cup in England.

While calling on his side to play a bit more positive cricket, Mahmood observed that Pakistan would continue to make mistakes until they would change their mentality, the Dawn reported.
