Akram said Pakistan needs to repeat 1992 World Cup campaign to win
Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram advised current captain Sarfaraz Ahmed to not change their winning combination ahead of their New Zealand match. Akram continued he wanted the Shaheens to perform in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup similar to their 1992 campaign.
This was because Pakistan had lost a couple of matches at the start of their 1992 World Cup before they defeated New Zealand in the finals.
“They (New Zealand) were unbeaten in 1992 too before playing against us and we won the game, they’re unbeaten again and I hope we repeat the show, but (the) boys will have to give their best,” said Akram.
However, Akram said it was not a good sign that the team had dropped the most catches in the tournament.
“We have dropped 14 catches in the tournament. We are the top on the list of teams dropping most catches in the World Cup which isn’t a good sign,” stated Akram. “This isn’t something new but we need to overcome this problem.”
Pakistan will be playing against New Zealand today at Edgbaston Cricket Ground. The Shaheens currently have +1550 odds to win the entire tournament.
