The Pakistan cricket team has come under heavy criticism after a 0-3 clean sweep in the three-match ODI series at the hands of England. After losing three consecutive ODIs, former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has criticized the team led by Babar Azam, with no stars in the current squad. He says that Captain Babar is not accepting this statement of Akhtar and that Akhtar must tell who the star is. He said he does not want to argue with the former fast bowler in this regard. “I think he (Shoaib Akhtar) doesn’t think like that, but all the players are giving him 100 percent of their time all the time. I think you should ask him who is the star and who is not. Can’t.

Babar scored 158 runs in the best innings of his career. In addition, Mohammad Rizwan scored 74 runs. On this basis the Pakistan team scored 331 runs for the loss of nine wickets in 50 overs. The captain about the team’s batting, ‘If we talk about batting, the ball was coming at a little double speed at the beginning. We are trying to keep the partnership going. The longer we take it, the better it will be for us because we can stay up to the end. I partnered with the Imam and then another good partnership with Mohammed Rizwan. I mean score is enough. We could have scored more but that did not happen due to the loss of some back-to-back wickets.

Akhtar had previously said that the Pakistan team was playing cricket in the 70s. He said on his YouTube channel, ‘Pakistan is still playing cricket in the 70s. These players are happy to score 320-330 on the wicket, where they can score more runs. When we lose two-three wickets, we slow down and hope that we run in the last 10 overs. This is 70s cricket, we got there. England played better cricket than us, their batsmen were always spinning a strike which kept up the scorecard and the batsmen were never stressed. But we played 70s cricket because our mentality was, we don’t want to improve ourselves.
