Shoaib Akhtar On Team India: Pakistan lost the match on the last ball against Zimbabwe in Perth on Thursday. After this defeat, former cricketers and fans are criticizing the Pakistan team a lot. Former players like Wasim Akram, Shoaib Malik, Waqar Younis and Misbah-ul-Haq took on the Pakistan team. Apart from this, former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar also made a scathing attack on Babar Azam’s team, but he also made a prediction on Team India, after which the fans got angry on Rawalpindi Express.
‘Indian team no Tees Maar Khan’
Shoaib Akhtar said that after the Super-12 round, the Pakistan team will come from Australia, but the journey of the Indian team will also end in the semi-finals. Team India will return home after losing the semi-finals. He said that I had already said that Babar Azam’s team will return to Pakistan this week, while the Indian team will leave from Australia next week. He further said that the Indian team is no Tees Maar Khan, but our team is very bad.
Targeting the Pakistan team, Shoaib Akhtar further said that what kind of cricket do you want to play? You lose to a team like Zimbabwe. There is a lack of brains in the Pakistani team management and the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board.
‘You can’t do well in the World Cup with such a team’
Shoaib Akhtar said that the Pakistani team is playing with 4 bowlers, in which there are 3 spinners. It was necessary to have a good middle order player in this team. What kind of team are you selecting? He further said that the Pakistan team included Shan Masood in the playing XI by sitting out Fakhar Zaman, but this was a very wrong decision of the Pakistan team.
Akhtar further said that I am constantly repeating that apart from the opener, the middle order is very poor. You can’t do well with such a team in a tournament like the World Cup.
‘What can I say now’
Disappointed with Pakistan’s defeat, Shoaib Akhtar said what can I say now? Pakistan team is out of the World Cup after just 2 matches. The captain of Pakistan team is not good. The Pakistani captain is consistently performing poorly, but he is not ready to listen to the advice of the people.
Shoaib Akhtar questioned the fitness of Shaheen Afridi apart from Babar Azam’s poor captaincy. He said that both the openers should have made better use of the powerplay, but they could not do so. Fakhar Zaman is sitting outside, but you could not use it. Fakhar Zaman is a better player on the backfoot, due to which he would have been a better option on Australian wickets.
