KARACHI - Chief Selector Iqbal Qasim was shocked over Pakistan junior team’s performance in the ICC Under19 World Cup now in progress in Brisbane. “I am really surprised and deeply disappointed with the showing of the junior lot,” he said in an interview when approached for his reaction on Friday. “Pakistan team was among the favourites to regain the title after winning it twice,” he commented. Babar Azam’s team finished worst-ever eighth after losing their 7th/8th place playoff to Bangladesh by five wickets. Pakistan’s previous worst position was 4th. “I think after a narrow defeat to India in the quarter-finals, team lost the way,” he said. They got some kind of mental bloke after losing to India in nail-biting finish,” he added.  “Three successive defeats against India, West Indies and now Bangladesh by Pakistan was just unbelievable,” he observed. “I think selectors, picked the best possible lot and expected them to do well in Australia. But it went other way around.”
