Shaheen Afridi, who had a memorable World Cup before his last over of the spell against the Aaron Finch-led team, took to social media to express his feelings.

PCB chairman Ramiz Raja has praised the Pakistan team for playing fearless cricket in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup. The team led by Babar Azam has won five consecutive matches and will face Australia in the second semi-final of the tournament.

”So far the Pakistan team has really done well and impressed us well with their consistent performances. I don’t think Babar Azam needs to do anything differently in the semi-final against Australia. The team should just remain motivated and play fearlessly,” Ramiz said in a statement.

He was happy to see the team shed the tag of being inconsistent performers by doing well in the global event.

”The win over India was the result of a strong temperament while we beat New Zealand with some good planning, while the win over the Afghanistan team came after playing their spinners well,” he added.

He said Babar Azam’s leadership, the self-belief of the players and their humble behaviour on the field have led to consistency in the performance.
