Aqib Javed sees no problem for Pakistan playing in India
As the ODI World Cup 2023, which will be held in India, gets closer, former pacer Aaqib Javed said on Monday that the Pakistan team wouldn’t have any trouble playing in their neighbouring country.
The former cricketer also said, “Pakistan won’t have any trouble playing in India.”
“Pakistan has always made life hard for India,” he said. “But when the World Cup is held in India, the Pakistan team won’t have any trouble playing on the pitches there.”
During India’s recent home series against New Zealand, the “Men in Blue” scored 349 runs in the third 50-over match and 385 runs in the first ODI.
“Even though India scored a lot of runs in the ODI series against New Zealand. But Pakistan’s bowling is different from New Zealand’s, so the Indian batsmen scored 400 runs,” he said.
The coach of the Lahore Qalandars thinks that India will find it hard to score 300 runs against Pakistan.
“The Pakistan cricket team is better at ODI cricket because it bowls better. Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Naseem Shah are all completely healthy, which is good for the team. Pakistan already has Mohammad Nawaz and Shadab Khan in India, so they won’t need a fast bowling all-rounder. “If Pakistan gets 300 runs, the other team will have a hard time catching up,” he said.
The former pacer also suggested that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) put together a team and not change it until after the World Cup so that they can see how things are going.
“Make an unchanging team until the World Cup. Think about and understand how our team will be put together, what the playing eleven will be. “In the end, he said, “the sooner you decide, the more your team will grow.”
