KARACHI (Agencies) - Pakistan's failure to force a win over Sri Lanka in the first Test has come under criticism from former players with many of them blaming dropped catches as the reason behind draw in Abu Dhabi. Sri Lanka, led by a superb double-hundred from Kumar Sangakkara, managed to draw the match albeit helped by some sloppy fielding from Pakistani players, who dropped crucial catches on the last two days of the Test. Pakistan's interim coach, Mohsin Khan admitted that dropped catches had cost Pakistan badly but said he was 85 per cent satisfied with the performance of the team. "We will work harder on our catching and fielding for the next Test," said Mohsin. Former captain Rashid Latif paid rich tributes to Sangakkara and said the left-hander has further proven his class with a double-hundred." I think the fielding did play a part in the draw but we also missed another spinner and we need to get Danish Kaneria back into the team," said Rashid. Former chief selector and Test player, Salahuddin Ahmed blamed Mohsin for the draw and said, "The coach was unable to motivate the players. We lost a golden opportunity to beat Sri Lanka." Former Test spinner Iqbal Qasim blamed the dropped catches for the draw but said one must not take away any credit from Sangakarra, who played a brilliant knock under lot of pressure. Pakistan's former Test opener and coach, Mudassar Nazar praised the Pakistani bowlers for their hard work and felt that perhaps the team had underestimated the Sri Lankan's resolve to draw the Test.
