NEW DELHI, Aug 10: Calling Pakistan a �better side� than England, former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq said Azhar Ali�s men have it in them to bounce back from the defeat in the opening Test and clinch the three-match series.
Pakistan were in a commanding position on the fourth day of the first Test at Old Trafford but ended up losing the game by three wickets, thanks to counter-attacking knocks by Jos Buttler and Chris Woakes.
The 50-year-old Inzaman, who has scored 8830 runs in 120 Tests and 11739 runs in 378 ODIs, said it was disappointing to see Pakistan lose from a winning position but backed his country to turn things around in the second match.
�I think Pakistan team is better than England and we should have won the first Test. It�s very disappointing but I believe Pakistan can still win the series,� said Inzamam on his YouTube channel.
Pakistan had grabbed a 107-run lead in the first innings but were bowled out for 169 in their second essay, leaving England with a target of 277.
The visitors then reduced England to 117 for five but Buttler and Woakes shared a match-winning stand of 139 to take the game away from Pakistan. � PTI
