Did the PCB blunder by not arranging warm up games in the US for the Pakistani team for this T20 WC?

Not sure if it would have made a big difference but conditions in the US were clearly not easy for batting. Maybe the team would have benefitted by getting maximum exposure to the conditions from a batting point of view.
 
This team played in Ireland and Eng before WC unlike many other sides who were busy in IPL yet they are bossing it, but guess what instead of Kakul PCB should have arranged a peep camp in LasVegas
 
Hindsight is 20/20 but yes, a few warmups in US conditions might have helped the boys adjust. If we had beaten US we'd end with 3 wins and proceed to the Super 8.
 
The PCB made a smart move, if this Pakistan team had progressed to the next round they would only have got even worse beatings. Better their aukat was exposed early.
 
They needed warm up watches on these wickets. Again PCB never make it easy for their players.
 
Nobody could have prepared themselves for these kind of tracks. Every team struggled at new york.

Definitely the Weakest White ball team in Pakistan history this. 2013 CT would hammer these lads.
 
There were many other teams who did not get proper preparation to the conditions as well. But they are through.
 
PCB missed the boat by not sending proper batsmen. They assumed that the par score in the World Cup would be 200, forgetting wickets in Caribbean are slow and low and you need proper batsmen there. Had they sent players like Saud Shakeel and Abdullah Shafiq, result could have been different. Bits and pieces players never work on difficult tracks.
 
Should have traveled a month earlier to do 2 weeks of sightseeing, shopping and meet and greet, followed by two weeks of warm ups before the tournament started.

Pretty much this.
 
Bangladesh in hindisght has done a good job of arranging a series with USA !! They sure lost the series. But they are in the next round now.

Ct 2013 isn't even the weakest Pakistan side lol, its weak though 100.

The weakest side Is the 2020 Pakistan t20 team with misbah coming along. The weakest tournament side is 2024 100%
 
I think so.
Bangladesh played 3 matches against USA before the tournament in USA. That series helped us huge i think.
PCB is to blame for this .
