Pakistan is the only team to win five consecutive matches in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup. They were brilliant against big nations like India and New Zealand. Afghanistan, Namibia and Scotland were defeated as well.
Lauding the Men in Green for their performance in the UAE, Aakash Chopra stated Pakistan performed exceptionally well despite the cancellation of the series with New Zealand and England.
According to him, they have match-winners in all the departments of the game.
“Look, Pakistan deserve credit for the way they have performed in the World Cup. With no practice under their belt, things could have gone wrong but the players stood with each other. They came with a plan and executed it to perfection.”
Pakistan came to the tournament without any match practice but they didn’t allow it to impact their performance from the first match of the campaign.
They register their maiden win against India in the history of ICC World Cups. Babar-led team thumped arch-rivals by 10 wickets.
There was no looking from here on as Pakistan continued their winning momentum against other teams of the group.
Babar led from the front and he is the current leading run-scorer in the tournament. Mohammad Rizwan, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez and Asif Ali have also contributed to the batting department. Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Iman Wasim and Shadab Khan have taken regular wickets to win games for the side.
