Pakistan had a roller coaster ride in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 event as the boys in green registered an effective comeback in the second half of the tournament only to see their hopes getting smashed. Despite beating few top sides, Pakistan was thrown out of the semi-final contention courtesy of a poor net run-rate.
While many cricket pundits advocated the use of head-to-head mechanism, others went on to criticize Pakistan’s think tank for not planning things properly. Former Pakistan cricketer Yasir Arafat belongs to the second bunch as he recently shared his disappointment with Pakistan’s tactics in the ongoing championship in England and Wales.
Throwing forward his views, the 37-year old added that Pakistan’s planning was full of confusion as despite investing on few players, they dropped them for the mega-event and they realized the need of experience hands like Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz. Moreover, the Rawalpindi born shared frustration as he opined that the green team never really recovered from the horror show against West Indies which ultimately led to their exit by denting their net run-rate to a great extent.
