Pakistan’s batting intent was missing in the last match against Sri Lanka: Wasim Akram
In an interview with BBN Sports, Akram stated that Pakistan must be wary of the in-form Sri Lankan team.
“The Pakistan team has performed admirably in this Asia Cup.” However, in the game against Sri Lanka, their batting lacked intent. However, the bowling was good. They should, hopefully, learn from their mistakes. Nonetheless, I believe Pakistan will be the favorite in the finals. “However, the exciting and young Sri Lanka team cannot be underestimated,” said Akram.
“Pakistan cricket fans have been saying that our middle order is a little inexperienced. It expose in the last Super 4 game after Rizwan was dismissed. ” However, it will be a good wicket in the final, and hopefully they will come back stronger,” he added.
Akram also praised Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, calling him “one of the best players in the world” and predicting that he will perform well in the final match.
“Babar is one of the best players in the world, and he only needs one good inning to win.” He struggled a little because he was concerned about the lack of runs. But the good news is that he has spent time on the crease, which is important for any great player. “I think he’ll do well in the final,” Akram concluded.
