Lahore: Former Pakistan coach Mohsin Khan is still not able to fathom the reasons for his team's disappointing show against England in the ODI and T20 fixtures and has dropped hints that something fishy might have gone on in the series played recently in the UAE.

In his various interviews to Pakistani television channels and websites, the former Test player has maintained that he is still not able to understand what led to the team's sudden drop in form after winning the Test series 3-0.

Mohsin told a Pakistan based website that it was beyond his imagination after the Test series whitewash how badly things went.

"I still cannot believe what went wrong during those matches. The spirit, the body language, the killer instinct, it all just disappeared in a matter of a few days. It was the same venues, almost the same group of players, almost the same opposition. The same team that was flying high a few days earlier, was just so deflated," said Mohsin.

"When we lost the first ODI, I thought it happens and put it down to the players adjusting to the format and the strength of the opposition. That first defeat was, in my view, a good wakeup call and I thought we would bounce back, but then things just got worse," he added.

Mohsin said he actually thought Pakistan had a stronger combination in the shorter formats than in the Test series compared to England.

"After each defeat against England I was just getting more and more depressed as I could not understand why the body language and performances were so poor in the one day internationals and the Twenty20 matches," he said.
