‘India Tees Maar Khan nahi hai, wo agle hafte World Cup se wapas aa jayegi,’ Shoaib Akhtar said following Zimbabwe’s victory over Pakistan.
Shoaib Akhtar was blunt in his analysis of Pakistan’s loss to Zimbabwe, but the former Pakistani speedster also made another prediction that wasn’t warmly received by the supporters. According to Akhtar, Pakistan is likely to be eliminated from the T20 World Cup Super 12 stage, and India will also lose in the semifinals.

Following their unexpected one-run loss to Zimbabwe on the final ball of their T20 World Cup Super 12 Group 2 match on Thursday in Perth, Pakistan was heavily criticised by both spectators and analysts. Wasim Akram, Shoaib Malik, Waqar Younis, and Misbah-ul-Haq among others launched a harsh criticism of Babar Azam and company for their string of World Cup losses, which has now jeopardised their qualification for the semi-finals. Shoaib Akhtar didn’t hold back in his judgement of Pakistan’s defeat at the Sydney Cricket Ground, but he added another prediction that wasn’t warmly received.by the crowd. Akhtar predicted that both Pakistan and India will leave the T20 World Cup Super 12 stage and head home.to be eliminated from the semifinals.
“Pakistan will return this week, as I’ve previously informed them. India will return the following week after participating in the semifinals. We are much worse than India, who is hardly some invincible force. Speaking on his behalf, Voh bhi koi Tees Maar Khan nahi hai
India is currently in first place in Group 2 after defeating the Netherlands and Pakistan back-to-back. If South Africa is defeated in their forthcoming match on Sunday, the Rohit Sharma-led squad will virtually likely advance to the semifinals because their next two opponents would be Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.
Pakistan, who finished second in this group, will also be hoping that India wins its remaining matches so they can win three games in a row and get to the semifinals.
The Men in Green played well with the ball, holding Zimbabwe to 129/8, but their batters blew the chance to add runs and ultimately lost the match. by one run. This was the lowest goal Pakistan have ever failed to reach in a T20 World Cup.Akhtar claims that Babar Azam is a “bad captain” and that their middle order may use some work..
I’ve been saying it continuously, but these openers and the middle order aren’t good enough for us to succeed at this level. How shall I put it? Pakistan’s captain is unreliable. In the second match, Pakistan was eliminated from the world cup. vs Zimbabwe. Come one down, Babar, but he is not paying attention. Shaheen Afridi has a serious fitness issue. a serious weakness in captaincy.
What style of cricket are you interested in playing? God forbid you fell short to Zimbabwe. Don’t you realise how poorly your cricket is playing? The PCB chairman and management lack intelligence. Three of the four bowlers we had to use were quick bowlers. You are choosing something else when a correct middle order is required, the man replied.
Pakistan chose to play Shan Masood in instead of Fakhar Zaman in their first two matches, which Akhtar believes was a mistake.
“Two good openers who can utilise the 30-yard circle were required. You didn’t use Fakhar Zaman, who is sitting there. He is a back-foot player who would thrive in Australia… It’s quite embarrassing. Finally, it is not you, but we must deal with the media. We must sit in India. We must provide answers to the globe. What are our options now? There are no plans, no middle order, no openers… I was predicting that Zimbabwe will win if they bowled length balls. I don’t have faith in this group “He continued.
