Former veteran fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has said that Pakistan’s team can be out of the first round in the T20 World Cup. According to Shoaib Akhtar, there are many shortcomings in the Pakistan team and they may have to bear the brunt during the World Cup.
Pakistan recently suffered a 3-4 loss in the seven-match T20I series against England. For this reason, the Pakistani team is getting a lot of criticism at this time. Questions are being raised especially on the middle order batsmen. Apart from Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan, the rest of Pakistan’s batsmen are continuously flopping.
Pakistan’s middle order can be completely destroyed – Shoaib Akhtar
Shoaib Akhtar said that Pakistan’s middle order is not good. If Pakistan’s openers do not perform, then the middle order is completely shattered. If you want to win the World Cup, then you can’t go to play like this. I am afraid that Pakistan may be knocked out of the first round of the T20 World Cup. That’s why I criticized everyone including Saqlain Mushtaq. Pakistan is not doing well and it is very sad to see this. It is not going to be easy for the management from here.
According to Shoaib Akhtar, Pakistani batsmen in Australia will be troubled by bowling short balls. For this reason, the team management should take difficult decisions.
He said Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan and Iftikhar Ahmed will be bowled short. The team’s batting is not as strong as it should be. Until you strengthen your batting, the batsmen will continue to be exposed like this. You cannot think that fast bowlers in Australia will not bowl you short balls.Pakistan’s team can be out of the first round in T20 World Cup.
