Veteran commentator and cricket analyst, Bazid Khan, showed great concern over Pakistan's recent performances against the top 5 ODI sides. He said, "The struggle of not being able to compete against the top 5 ODI sides is not a new one providing that they only won 3 matches in the last 18 ODI ".
He also talked about Pakistan's massive margins of defeat in the first 3 ODI matches which cost them the series. Pakistan has scuffled against top teams. They lost 5-0 to New Zealand recently, followed by a 3-2 defeat against South Africa in the ODI series, and now 3-0 down to Australia.
With World Cup 2019 imminent, Pakistan has to deal with this dilemma of choking against big teams. Their half-hearted performances will not gain them good results in the mega-event.
