Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
Former legendary pacer Waqar Younis believes Pakistan need to bring their “A-plus” performance if they are to beat archrivals India in the upcoming World Cup clash. In a must-win scenario for Pakistan, they will have to create history by registering their maiden triumph against India in World Cup encounters.
“When Pakistan play India it's always a huge game, but their meeting on Sunday is shaping up to be more crucial than ever. If Pakistan want to stay in the tournament, they have to bring an A-plus performance and win that game,” he wrote for a column for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Waqar lavished praise on left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir’s return to form with a splendid 5/30 against Australia, albeit in a losing cause. He also suggested the need to induct Shadab Khan into the side in order to add batting and bowling depth to the playing XI.
