Islamabad:

Test and one-day captain Misbah-ul-Haq says Pakistan needs a batting coach to solve the team's top-order batting problems at the crease in international matches.

Misbah returned home on Monday after leading Pakistan to its first ever 2-1 victory in a one-day series against South Africa.

Despite Pakistan's top order struggling against South Africa, rookie allrounders Bilawal Bhatti and Anwar Ali emerged as future stars in the series.

Misbah says a "batting coach could be beneficial" for the team because batting "is a constant problem for us for the last 2-3 years and we have to seriously start thinking about it."

After two days of rest at home, Pakistan team will leave for United Arab Emirates on Thursday to play two Twenty20, five ODIs and three test matches against Sri Lanka.
