Previous Pakistan pacer, Shoaib Akhtar, ripped into the Indian team after their defeat to England in the semi-final of the T20 World Cup 2022.

The Indian cricket team’s semi-final loss to England in the T20 World Mug 2022 semi-final dampened the cricketing mood in the Eastern sub-continent as many followers were anticipating a possible Indo-Pak last. Shoaib Akhtar, among the greatest Pakistani cricketers to ever play the sporting activity, posted a video on social media sites criticising the Indian group after Rohit Sharma & Co. were handed an embarrassing defeat by England. Akhtar also said that Pakistan were eagerly anticipating dealing with India in the summit clash but that won’t be feasible anymore.

Akhtar, in his assessment of the Indian group for the way they bet England, lambasted the high quality of cricket the team produced at the Adelaide Oval. Akhtar also questioned why Yuzvendra Chahal really did not play a single ready the group in the T20 World Cup.

” It’s a very humiliating loss for India. They played awfully and they was worthy of to lose. They didn’t should have to receive the finals. India were beaten really terribly. Their bowling was subjected very severely. These conditions are useful for rapid bowling and also India don’t have a specific pacer. I do not understand why they really did not play Yuzvendra Chahal in a single suit. The team choice for India is confusing,” he stated.

Embarrassing loss for India. Bowling terribly exposed. No meet up in Melbourne sadly.

Akhtar even claimed that the Indian group lacked the aggressiveness needed to win matches on the day.

“It was a truly poor day for India as their heads went down after they lost the toss. When England batted their initial 5 overs, the Indians had their arms up in the air. A minimum of, India needs to have tried to eliminate, maybe the bowlers can’ve bowled round the gate and supplied a couple of baby bouncers. There was no aggression from the Indian side,” he added.

To conclude, Akhtar said that Hardik Pandya might quickly end up being the captain of the Indian team in the quickest style.

“There is a lot to consider for Indian cricket and also currently Hardik Pandya is an emerging captain for New Zealand and he has an opportunity of being permanent,” the retired speed bowler concluded.
