Pakistan is in England currently playing ODIs against them. This Saturday they had the second match in the series and they lost that as well as the first one. Even when many English players are playing internationals for the first time. There is no doubt that the loss would discourage the fans.
After Sri Lankan face was ground down by the host England now is the time for Pakistan to have the same. To this thought, Shoaib Akhtar said that Pakistan will lose even the last match flatly. He added that criticizing the team of one’s own country is not something one will do for fun, but the team is enacting below par.
He said that these players are not encouraging the young generation with their performances. The comment even had a question “which kid will start playing after watching this team?”. Akhtar is showing his true concern for the team and others have the same distressing tone as well.
Instead, they are breaking down the fervor for cricket in the country. He proclaimed that the Pakistan Cricket Board is doing a great job in forfeiting the craze for the game in the nation. Not only Akhtar but various former players are criticizing the team. However, Akhtar said his points without filters.
He even added that the team of Pakistan is a T20 team only. He explained further adding that the team loses 5 wickets in 20 overs. They only score 160-175 runs in the T20s and the same is done in the ODI’s as well.
Akhtar said that the performance by the Pakistan team was average and they do not have a win for them coming soon. His growing concern is about saving the country team from being doomed by all means.
