Several former cricketers and legends of Pakistani cricket are disappointed with the flow Pakistan team and their recent performance against England. The team led by Babar Azam fought back against England’s second string team and lost the series of three matches with one more match to go.
After losing the opening match, many experts and fans believed that the Pakistani team would definitely make a comeback in the series. However, that did not happen as the visitors lost their second match by 52 runs at the iconic Lords Cricket Ground in London.
Former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar seems very upset when he responds to Pakistan’s series loss on his Youtube channel. He called Pakistan’s performance “very average” and criticized the batting unit as well as the team management and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
‘Even though it was just a run-and-ball and what was there in that bowling, you had so many problems. The ball nibbles a little; it itself is a lot for you. A very, very average performance, ” said Aktar.
The ‘Rawalpindi Express’ further predicted that Pakistan would be whitewashed and lost this series 3-0. He said the batting had always let Pakistan down, and the trend continued.
“It has not happened yet. It’s going to be 3-0. Pakistan has worked hard to ensure that they deliver an average performance. The Pakistan batting has always let us down, and the same trend continues now. “ he added.
The 45-year-old claims that Pakistan is only a T20 team, and they also play the same in the ODIs.
‘What was on the wicket? Tell me that first. Pakistan is only a T20 team. They play like T20 and come out like that. They lost five wickets in twenty overs. In T20s they also achieve 150-175 and the same in ODIs, ” Akhtar added further.
