Misbah Ul-Haq is the first-ever head coach-cum-chief selector of Pakistan cricket, and he sure wields some power. That power was in full display on Thursday when he sarcastically claimed that the reason for Pakistan's 0-3 defeat in the three-match T20I series against a depleted Sri Lankan side was due to his arrival. It was so brutal that skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed, still a novice when it comes to press conferences and taking questions, was forced to hide his face. (More Cricket News)

Misbah's answer to a journalist asking what had happened for the top-ranked side to suffer a series whitewash was a plain and simple "I happened" snub. Yes, he's the lord commander of Pakistan cricket and also the chief nutritionist, besides others. So, most of the questions were directed towards him. And he didn't disappoint the gathering, except maybe  Sarfaraz. Or maybe not.  Because, who dares not enjoy Misbah in full flow.

"Maybe I did something? Probably I made our right-hand batsmen switch to left-handed batting or maybe made our right-handers bowl with the left arm or vice-versa?" Misbah
continued.

But he was dead serious when he said that he hasn't "done anything in the last 10 days that could have deterred anything."

"The strategy was simple: to cash in on the Powerplay and later go all out in the last five overs. These are the same players who took Pakistan on top [in the T20I rankings] but in this series they were not able to execute things well with the bat, ball and while fielding," he added.
