- Shoaib Akhtar said, it is now difficult for Pakistan to lose two consecutive matches
- Said, India will have to work on its bowling and playing XI
Asia Cup 2022 Shoaib Akhtar: After India’s loss to Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup, there has been a stir in the entire cricketing world. No one expected that Team India, captained by Rohit Sharma, would be knocked out of this big tournament after losing two consecutive matches in the Asia Cup. Team India made a great start in the Asia Cup, when Pakistan was beaten by five wickets. After this, India also defeated Hong Kong, but the winning streak stopped here. After defeating the Indian team by five wickets in Super 4, Pakistan got its revenge in a single week. It would have been fine even if the matter ended here, but after that the Indian team also lost to Sri Lanka and is on the verge of being eliminated from the tournament. Meanwhile, former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has expressed grief over the loss of Team India and has also given some advice for Team India.
What Shoaib Akhtar said on Team India’s defeat
Former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar, popularly known as Rawalpindi Express, said that we wanted Team India to come after winning their matches and then play the final with us, but this does not seem to be happening now. He said that Pakistan has now lost two matches from here, then the way for Team India to go to the final can be opened. I am not saying that it is impossible, but it will not happen. It would have been nice if the Indian team had qualified for Super Sunday. Pakistan’s bowling is very good, in every match Pakistani team is fighting and then winning. Talking about the Indian team, Shoaib Akhtar said that India should not make a mistake. Rohit Sharma should be retained as the captain. Rohit Sharma is not looking well, he is also screaming and screaming. The Indian team is constantly making changes in the playing XI of its last three matches. Sometimes Dinesh Karthik plays and sometimes Rishabh Pant. Then you also made Ravi Bishnoi sit outside.
Shoaib Akhtar said, Indian team can wake up from T20 World Cup
Shoaib Akhtar also said that the Indian team has got a wakeup call from this Asia Cup. What should be India’s playing XI? The Indian team management has now come to know that we have a weakness here. India has got a tournament where it lost. Lost two matches in a row. According to me, India needs to strengthen their bowling. They will have to pick five to six bowlers who play the match and take wickets. One thing is also that Hardik Pandya is bowling well. Arshdeep Singh may have dropped the catch, but he is bowling well in the last over. India has not played very bad cricket, it is another matter that they have not played very well either. There is a rise in every fall, in this also the Indian team has a chance to rise. He has also predicted that there could be a final match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
