Manjrekar laments Pakistan cricket's decaying state

Manjrekar laments Pakistan cricket's decaying state

Former Indian batsman Sanjay Manjrekar has addressed the captaincy of Sarfaraz Ahmed in a recent article by claiming that the wicketkeeper does not come close to the legacy of Imran Khan, the only Pakistan skipper till date to provide them with a World Cup triumph.

"When we played Pak in the late 80s through the 90s they had strong leadership. The world hasn’t seen a better captain than Imran Khan. He was self-confident, he'd learnt cricket the hard way. Under Imran, Pakistan had a great team culture, a winning culture", Manjrekar stated.

He said Imran was superior to the current captain primarily because of his intense self-belief and brainwashing his troops into instilling a never-say-die attitude. He also admitted that Pakistan’s present team was quite inferior to the Virat Kohli-led India side and hence Sarfaraz could not be solely blamed for defeat.
