ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: In the cricket world, Pakistan is known as a team that sometimes performs brilliantly poorly, but it has many players who have the ability to turn the match on their own. And this thing makes him one of the most attractive teams in the World Cup starting May 30. Pakistan, who won the title of World Cup in 1992, has been here with 10 consecutive ODI losses. The bad form of the team can also be estimated from the fact that Afghanistan also defeated them in the practice match.
Pakistan reached England a month before preparations for World Cup But in the ODI series England beat them by 4-0 and raised concerns. Earlier, in Dubai, Pakistan defeated Pakistan by 5-0. The team won their last ODI match against South Africa in January. Pakistan’s current team can take inspiration from the team that won the World Cup under the leadership of Imran Khan’s charisma captain in 1992. The team did not even have the rhythm before the 1992 World Cup. Even after such a performance, no team would like to take it lightly, because the team won the Champions Trophy title in 2017 in these circumstances of England.
Shahid Afridi not want to hear excuses in World Cup from Pakistan To return to victory, Pakistan has to improve fielding and bowling. Team coach Mikey Arthur has also told him the cause of concern. In two games against England, the team could not defend the target of 358 and 340, while in two other matches, the bowlers looted more than 350 runs. The good thing for the team is that the batsmen are in rhythm and are doing well in England’s circumstances.
The lack of continuity in team selection is also a matter of discussion. In the last 15 players, there are three such that were not part of the previously announced team. Wahab Riaz returned to the team after two years while Mohammed Amir was not able to take wickets in the middle overs. In the middle, Asif Ali has been given a place in the team. It is also a matter of discussion that what Sarfraz Ahmed will bat on. Knowledgeable believe that they should bat at the top order.
In the World Cup, the team will start its campaign against the West Indies on 31 May.
