As Mohsin Naqvi having good time in NY Pakistani team seeing nightmares ahead of its clash with India

PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi is having a great time in New York while Pakistan Cricket Team is struggling to make it’s act together.

   Naqvi who had offered $1 million to each player if the team won the T20 cup but now he must be thinking to raise the bar after the PAK team lost to the USA.

   Like other media Dawn also lambasted the team and other media outlets.

    “Pakistani team held their heads in their hands; the unthinkable had happened. Their T20 World Cup hopes suffered a body blow at the very start of the campaign. In the newest cricketing land — the US — Pakistan are back in familiar Cup territory. A stunning Super Over loss to the hosts means that Babar Azam’s men have not only left themselves no room for error but that they might also have to rely on other results to reach the next stage of the tournament. While the US, which also beat Canada in their opening match, celebrated a famous victory, the PCB and team management were left scratching their heads,” Dawn writes.

    The PCB should be asking itself how it has come to this. The answer perhaps lies in the team’s mentality, as indicated by Babar himself afterwards.

  The Pakistan captain stated that the team had been more relaxed because the opposition was only making its debut at the tournament. Shockingly, the US have reminded Babar that at this level at a World Cup, there are no easy games. Pakistan were outclassed by a team that was more concentrated and more committed, and therefore better in every department.

Pakistan’s batters struggled and the bowlers could not get breakthroughs. Had it not been for a late show of speed by Mohammad Amir and Haris Rauf — who eventually endured a disastrous final over — the US would have won the match even more comfortably. Shoddy fielding and inaccurate bowling by Amir in the Super Over helped the US post a sizeable target that proved too much for the big hitters. No doubt, arch-rivals India will be licking their lips at the prospect of taking on a demoralised Pakistan in New York on Sunday. The national side has once again proved to be the ‘cornered tigers’, a position it is, sadly, accustomed to.

   The hope is they can restore the fans’ faith in the side soon.

    Let’s see if we continue to see shameful performance of Pak cricket team. PAK DESTINY
