Wasim Akram’s | Pacer Wasim Akram Slams Pakistan’s Pathetic Performance against USA

Wasim Akram has lashed out at Pakistan following their shock loss to USA at the T20 World Cup. According to him, Babar Azam’s side will struggle to reach the knockout stages of this tournament.

Akram noted that the turning point was when USA took early wickets, which made Pakistan’s task much more difficult as they faltered to 30 for three at the end of Power Play. He added that even with captain Babar and Shadab Khan adding 72 runs between them for the fourth wicket, Pakistan never managed to gain momentum thereafter.Wasim Akram’s

Akram then went on to state that Pakistan’s batting, bowling and fielding performances against USA were well below par, which illustrated some serious problems within their cricketing system.

USA Captain Monank Patel earned high praise from the bowling great for marshalling his team’s resources and scoring a match-winning fifty. According to Anderson, Patel batted beautifully and used his experience against Pakistan batting line-up. Anderson further mentioned how Pakistan might have had more of a chance had their fielding not messed up during Super Over. Also noting how their decision not to include Mohammad Amir as one of their key batsmen had contributed greatly towards defeat.Wasim Akram’s

Wasim Akram’s | He Says Pakistan Will Struggle to Reach the Super 8 Stages

Pakistan cricket team are under immense pressure after failing to win any games so far at the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2024. After losing to USA in Dallas in their opening match, their hopes of qualifying for the Super 8 stages were dashed and former Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram has strongly criticised Babar Azam-led side for their poor showing and claimed they will find it difficult reaching further stages of tournament.Wasim Akram’s

Pakistan were completely overwhelmed in their tournament opener against USA, suffering an embarrassing 12-run defeat that was no contest at all. Batting first, Mohammad Rizwan, Usman Khan and Fakhar Zaman all exited quickly to leave them reeling at 26/3 and ultimately ending on 159/7 despite efforts at recovery from there.

USA made light work of Pakistan’s bowling in their reply, as Monank Patel hit an excellent fifty to seal a tie in the Super Over. Pakistan’s bowlers including Mohammad Amir and Saurabh Netravalkar failed to contain runs effectively.

Akram lambasted Pakistan for their dismal performance and indicated they will struggle to reach the Super 8 stage of the tournament. According to Akram, Pakistan must beat India on June 9 and two other top teams before qualifying.Wasim Akram’s

Under ICC rules, the team with the most wins will advance to the Super 8. In case of equal number of victories between two teams, their head-to-head record between each other serves as the tie-breaker, or in case both have identical win totals, net run rate becomes applicable as an alternate tiebreaker. Pakistan are scheduled to meet arch rival India next time around and could decide their fate in that game alone.Wasim Akram’s

Wasim Akram’s | He praised USA’s Captain Monank Patel

Patel was an exceptional performer for USA, marshalling bowling resources without losing any wickets and setting up their 18-run Super Over win against Pakistan. Additionally, he took three catches despite switching between left-handed opener and right-handed batsman roles during this match – an impressive feat given he only recently changed hands himself!

Akram expressed displeasure with Pakistan’s start, noting it would be difficult for Babar Azam’s side to advance beyond the group stages of the tournament. Both teams scored 159 runs during regulation time before proceeding into Super Over, where USA prevailed and won.

Death bowler Ahmed was not satisfied that Pakistan lost early wickets and struggled for momentum despite Babar Azam and Shadab Khan adding 72 runs for the fourth wicket in an unprecedented partnership of 72 runs for four wickets at one end of both innings. Additionally, he strongly criticised their fielding, suggesting they did not perform adequately enough in either innings.

Akram responded that his poor performance could be put down to several factors. In particular, he mentioned inability to rotate bowlers and lack of depth as being major factors; additionally he stated it wasn’t good for bowlers’ bodies to continue bowling at such high speed for extended periods.

He further stated that selecting Mohammad Nawaz as opposed to Usama Mir was a huge miscalculation that cost Pakistan the game. Nawaz failed to cope with the pressure of bowling at high speeds for such an extended period and was consequently dropped midway through his innings; another, more fresh bowler could have come into the match instead.
