Mohsin says Pak took off like supersonic jet win to secure 'incredible' win over England


March 16, 2012 - Karachi

Former Pakistan's interim coach Mohsin Khan has described the team's win over England in the United Arab Emirates as incredible, adding the team took off like a supersonic jet.

"The England Test series was just incredible. The team took off like a supersonic jet. Nobody anywhere expected us to defeat England 3-0 in the Test series. All the players gave everything, they were so determined, they were so motivated. All the pre Test series planning with the captain went so well," PakPassion.net quoted Mohsin, as saying.

"Our main focus was to make it clear to the boys that Pakistan cricket had gone through some very tough times recently and that it was our duty to portray Pakistan cricket and Pakistanis in a positive light. We reiterated to all of the players that the PCB were doing their utmost off the field to bring cricket back to Pakistan and that it was our duty to perform well on the field and show the world that Pakistan cricket cannot be ignored," he added.

Mohsin, under whose guidance Pakistan clinched Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and England series, expressed satisfaction with his tenure as Pakistan interim coach.

"Overall regarding my tenure as coach I speak with you as a very proud man and I'm thankful to the Almighty and all the supporters of Pakistan cricket who prayed for us, and of course I am very thankful to the players who responded tremendously and worked so hard with me, it has been a dream come true to have worked with such talented boys. It was also a dream come true for me to be their head coach," he added.

He said Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Zaka Ashraf had told him before the England series that this was his last assignment as coach.

"Nobody expects to be coach forever ! If the PCB had said to me that this is your last series as coach and they would be appointing somebody else regardless of whether we win or lose the England series, I would have said great, no problem. But instead it was always a case of statements from the PCB that nothing had been decided yet," he added.
