Former captain of the Pakistan cricket team Shahid Afridi while speaking to local news channel said that he is confident that Pakistan could reach the final four stage of the tournament and he is hopeful of a good show by the Pakistani cricket team in the upcoming World Cup in England.
“I have no doubts that this team can be among top four teams of the World Cup if boys play according to their potential,” Afridi said. “My advice to the boys is to play positive and aggressive cricket,” he added.
The all-rounder further said the format supports Pakistan and that the teams could make a comeback even if they fail to start well. “[The] players will have to play each game as if it is their last game, seriousness should be there in every game,” he said. “I have always said that Sarfaraz batting at the top will always be beneficial for Pakistan cricket team,” he said.
In response to a question, he said “I have always said that Wahab Riaz for his pace and Amir for his experience should have been included in the team,” Afridi said. “We now have four games left before World Cup commences … do as many as experiments you want, test as much as combinations you want, but enter the World Cup with [your] chin high and confidence and give your best,” the former captain said.
