Misbah feels Sarfaraz shies away from taking responsibility
The report added Misbah isn't encouraged by Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz and it's a concern.
"He is unhappy that some players are just too relaxed and take training lightly and are not working on improving their cricket discipline. He has also not been encouraged by the attitude of captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed whom he feels shies away from taking responsibility when the chips are down."
What has disturbed Misbah the most?
"What has disturbed Misbah the most in his first assignment as head coach and the chief selector is the reluctance of some players to follow directions of the management and do proper training to keep high fitness standards," one source said to PTI.
Misbah surprised by the behaviour of three senior players
It has also been reported that Misbah was surprised by the behaviour of three senior players -- Wahab Riaz, Imad Wasim, and Haris Sohail.
"Several times he felt they were making excuses to shy away from training and proper nets. He got the feeling they had some sort of excuse ready to go easy on their training," the source said.
