Pakistan head coach Waqar Younis has conceded that his team is not “good enough” to play in the World T20 semi-final.

The Men in Green are facing an early exit from the tournament after facing back-to-back defeat at the hands of hosts India and then New Zealand.

“We don’t deserve to go through to the semi-final,” Waqar said while speaking to  the media after the match. “If you [media] say, we will keep our hopes up, our hopes high.”

The former legendary fast-bowler also went on to criticise batsman Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad, who managed to score just 54 runs off 58 balls collectively in a chase of 180.

“Those who were shouting about not getting to bat in the position they want, this was their perfect opportunity,” said Waqar. “We were just not good enough. You can cry all you want, you can talk all you want, we are just not good enough, people have to take a hard look at themselves.”

Shahid Afridi’s men still have a chance to qualify for the semi-final, but for that they will first have to beat Australia on Friday in their last match, and then will have to hope that Australia beat India in their last match, which will tie all three teams on four points each, and Pakistan as of now have a much better run-rate than Australia and India, which can help them qualify for the semi-final.
