There's no room for error in the world cup for green shirts
We'll try our best to come back strongly by winning the match against india, Sarfaraz Ahmed.
Pakistan is currently sitting at number eight position in the points table while New Zealand is on top and Australia and India are on second and third spot respectively.
Will Pakistan disappoints us again or will they end up with a boom? After West Indies the loss against Australia put doubts on the performance of the senior batsmans.
Captain Sarfaraz said that there was a grass on the wicket and we didn't bowl well on that surface, apart from Muhammad Amir no bowler could took advantage of the surface. By losing two matches out of the first four matches make it difficult for the green shirts to reach the top four spots. Now they have to perform very well in the remaining five matches. There's is no room for error in the remaining matches admit Sarfaraz Ahmed. He said that if we have to beat top teams we should be at our best and try to lower the number of mistakes we do.
Pakistan has to face india in a super encounter on super sunday. Pakistan could reach the top four spots by beating New Zealand, South Africa, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. The only match Pakistan won was against the number one side England while they shared a point against Srilanka.
Pakistan is currently sitting at number eight position in the points table while New Zealand is on top and Australia and India are on second and third spot respectively. The batting dissapoint us in two matches. They made shocking 105 runs against West Indies while the senior batsmans played some rash shots against Australia.
No one took the responsibility to take the team over the line. The performance of the veteran Shoaib Malik is also not upto the mark. His average in 2019 is only 29 and his figures in England are also very bad. He is included in the team despite having a shocking average of 14 in England. Harris Sohail is not getting chance in the playing eleven despite having an average of 49 in the last year including two hundreds.
The fielding of the team is also a concern. Pakistan's fielding remain very bad in all the matches. Asif Ali drop two simple catches in the match against Australia. After the match sarfaraz said that fielding was another reason of the defeat. Fielders drop some easy catches.
Droping the catch of Finch was very costly. Amir bowled very well though. Feeling happy for his five wickets but it would have been great if pakistan won. Pakistan should have restrict Australia to a lower total on a difficult wicket.
The next match is very much important for pakistan. It is against india on 16th june in Old Trafford. It is a very high voltage game. Hopes are high from Amir as he is the key player against a strong batting line up. He is expected to repeat the heroics of the champion's trophy 2017 where he demolished the top order of the indian team and played an important role in the famous victory.
He perform well in the world cup upto now. He is the highest wicket taker with ten wickets under his name. PM Imran Khan adviced the team to play with bravery and courage.
