TV actor and host Mani share his thoughts on the Cricket World Cup 2023 and Pakistan team’s performance, talking about our only hope in the match.
“Pakistan under pressure on this batting heaven. Rizwan & Babar, hamari World Cup semi-final ki akhri umeed, warna bye bye’, wrote the actor in an Instagram post.”
Mani’s opinion comes at a time when the Pakistani team and Captain Babar Azam have been getting alot of criticism from all sides. Refelcting on Pak team’s recent performance in the ODI series, former cricketer and commentator Ramiz Raja claimed that players looked ‘scared and underconfident’ against Afghanistan. Before their stunning triumph at Chepauk, giant killers Afghanistan had never beaten Pakistan in the 50-over format. “Pakistan have a lot of problems to deal with. Babar Azam needs to improve a lot tactically”, he had said.
