It is impossible for Pakistan to turn around in the current World Cup, says Sourav Gangopadhyay. Pak team did not play well in the last match against India. The former captain of India was somewhat surprised about that.
Sourav clearly said in an interview given to a private channel, I am surprised to see the Pakistan team so weak. Pakistan team was very strong in our time. I did not see the urge in this group. I think it is difficult for this team to turn around.
Pakistan lost 8 consecutive times to India in ODI World Cup. Since that 1992 World Cup, India have won every time they have met. However, according to Sourav, there is no balance between batting and bowling in this Pakistan team.
Sourav feels that it will be difficult for the Pak team to come back if they don’t play as a team. A good innings by Babar Azam or Rizwan will do nothing. Rather, the team’s bowling department must also be equally effective.
Pak team has ended up with 191 runs from 155/2. 8 wickets fell for 36 runs. Collapsing under pressure is an ominous sign for the Pak team. Sourav said why Pakistan will collapse like this on mega stage. I couldn’t be more optimistic about this team.
