Karachi:

Embattled captain Mohammad Yousuf believes it is unfair to expect miracle results in Test cricket from an inexperienced and young Pakistan team.

The News quoted Yousuf as saying from Hobart that people had wrong expectations from the team and must face the reality now.

Yousuf on his first assignment as skipper lead Pakistan to a drawn Test series in New Zealand last year. However, his side has already lost the ongoing three-match Test series against Australia.

"If you expect something of this side, then maybe that is a wrong expectation. You have to see where we are playing, which team we are playing. You should keep that in mind. Our team doesn't have many world class players. Most of the batsmen average below 30. Then how can you expect them to come here and beat top teams like Australia," Yousuf was quoted as saying in the report.
