Gillespie Highlights Fitness and Consistency Issues in First Press Conference as Pakistan Test Cricket Coach

Pakistan Test Cricket Coach Jason Gillespie landed in Pakistan on Sunday and had its first press conference where he identified Pakistan Test Cricket team fitness, consistency, and other important aspects.


Jason Gillespie is known as a very famous Australian bowler with many records in Test Cricket is really eager to work with the Pakistan Test Cricket Team and also confirmed that he will go with Pakistan Shaheens with Australia in the upcoming tour.

“During the last tour to Australia, Pakistan lost the series 3-0 but they played well. There were moments in the series where they were also dominating the opponents.

“The Pakistan cricket team is very talented but the lack of consistency in performances is the main problem, we will see how we can bring continuity and consistency in performances.”

He declared unequivocally that, similar to international cricket, there will be no room for compromise when it comes to players’ fitness.

“In international cricket, you have to remain fit, there are no questions on that,” Gillespie added. “In international cricket, everyone should know about the importance of fitness. It is the main component of a sportsman.

“I have talked to Shan Masood [Pakistan’s red-ball capain] one to two times, I’m hoping we will play positive cricket. I will [also] discuss with the players what brand of cricket they want to play, the team will be selected while taking the opposition and conditions in mind.

“If a player is good for the team, he will definitely be selected. I’m in contact with Gary Kirsten [Pakistan’s white-ball coach] for players’ workload management.”

The former bowler stated that red-ball cricket is his main priority and that he will stop at nothing to help the squad get better before mentioning that he also wanted the team to get better at fielding.

“My focus is red-ball cricket, I will also travel to Australia with Shaheens and watch their players. I have talked with Jeff Lawson and Shaun Tait [Pakistan’s former bowling coach] on the Pakistan cricket team,” Gillespie said.

“There is a general opinion that Pakistan’s fielding is their weak point, so that would be my priority. For me, the goal is to see how we play against quality sides.”
