Salman Butt says “Even India didn’t do it, what insecurities do we have?” in T20 World Cup. Butt has come down heavily on the Pakistan cricket team. Azam for their negative strategies in the T20 World Cup 2021. Butt is arraigning Pakistan’s decision to field. Also, their best XI in practice matches instead of giving out-of-form or undercooked players some chances. Salman said the Pakistan team is showing their “insecurities” in public by being defensive. He also praises India’s tactics, saying that although all of Virat Kohli’s men had enough practice in the IPL. They still tried to give everyone some game time and are now better placed.
“India has utilized these warmup matches well… they’ve given game time to everyone despite the fact that they’ve all played the IPL. If they had not done this and had played with their playing XI, even then we could have argued that ‘They haven’t played together as a team so are doing it now. But even they didn’t do it. I don’t know what insecurity we have that ‘someone else should not make runs in that position or someone else should not get that opportunity. For God’s sake, you are the captain, you have to use your players, where will you do that?” Salman Butt said.
“Can’t it happen that God forbid that you both [Babar and Rizwan] will get out in the first over? Then also someone will have to play against the new ball. See, Babar got out early here [against South Africa] na? Now, what is their mindset of going ahead? I don’t understand this strategy,” Butt added.
Lastly, Babar Azam’s team overpowered defending champions West Indies. Also, in the first encounter, chasing down 131 with seven wickets to spare. However, a knock to remember from Rassie van der Dussen (101* of 51). It is helped South Africa beat Pakistan by six wickets in the second game.
