The Pakistan cricket team has come under fire in the past week for their upsets in the Asia Cup, where they lost to Sri Lanka in the final despite being the favourites, and also because their T20 World Cup squad was not announced. Veteran cricketers and experts have questioned the team’s ability to overtake the group stage at the mega event in Australia, but Pakistan’s chief selector Muhammad Wasim has tried to silence the critics by referencing the Indian cricket team. .

The Indian team was hoping to win the trophy for the eighth time, but India lost first to Pakistan and then to Sri Lanka and the team was out of the race for the final. However, in the last match, the Indian team defeated the Afghanistan team badly.

Which means the most to the team. He said, “India is a multi-billion dollar team, but we showed last year as well in this year’s Asia Cup that this (Pakistan) team is capable of winning and I am sure they will give happiness to the fans in the World Cup.” will continue.”
