PCB chairman Ramiz Raja said he has tried to motivate the current squad ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup final against England on November 13 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
The Babar Azam-led team, on Wednesday, November 9, defeated New Zealand by seven wickets at the Sydney Cricket Ground and advanced to the third T20 World Cup final.
Raja delivered the message Imran Khan said to the players that won the World Cup in 1992, 30 years ago.
“The speech was short. What you were supposed to do has been done. Your technique will not improve or become good in 24 hours. It is a mental game, and I repeated the same words before the final against England,” Raja was quoted as saying to the reporters.
“The players are chilled out and enjoying their time before the big day in Australia. This is how they should be before a game against Jos Buttler’s team,” he added.
Raja said that Babar Azam has a chance to make a name for himself by winning the second T20 World Cup title.
“I told him if he lifts the World Cup trophy, his name would always be remembered in the history of Pakistan cricket.’
