Looking back now in the cold light of day, no doubt Pakistan coach Moin Khan will reflect on a number of things that he and his team could have done differently in this World T20, although hindsight is always a wonderful gift to have.
Sure, the side was carrying a number of out-of-form players, and in that regard, perhaps Moin could have made changes to the line-up earlier than he did, especially the much-needed introduction of left-arm paceman Sohail Tanvir.
While they were also unlucky when it came to calling correctly at the toss, which Hafeez managed to do on only one occasion in the whole competition, in the end, Pakistan did end up batting first in all four group-stage matches just as they prefer to.
So ultimately, one of the pre-tournament favourites have only themselves to blame for their premature exit, with a combination of glaring weaknesses against high-quality spin bowling, star players not at the peak of their powers, an uninspired captain and at times the wrong personnel all contributing to their failure in Bangladesh.
