Former captain Misbah-ul-Haq mentioned that there will be no improvement in Pakistan cricket until it changes its tradition and stops attempting to find scapegoats.

Misbah also said ‘cosmetic surgery’ will not change anything in Pakistan cricket as the problems are deep-rooted in the system.

“The problem is that in our cricket we only look at results and we don’t give time or have patience for planning ahead and improving the system,” he said on the 'A-Sports' channel.

“We don’t focus on the fact that we have to develop our players at domestic level and then in the national team and work on their skill development. We want results and if we don’t get the desired results we start searching for scapegoats,” he said

Misbah and bowling coach Waqar Younis announced their resignations following the West Indies series last month.

“Unfortunately, looking for scapegoats is a norm in Pakistan cricket. After losing a match or series we look for someone as a scapegoat to save face. Nothing will change if we continue with this cosmetic surgery. You can change the coaches and players but deep down the problems will remain the same,” he added.
