Islamabad, Jun 22 (BAN/CD): It has been reported in the past that players urging for disciplinary action against other players' for misconduct inside and outside the pitch. But, in a rare case, former Cricketer who was not given opportunity in Pakistan's present world cup team, who was also part of Pakistan team in the past when the team had lost to India several times, Kamran Akmal appealed PM Imran Khan to take action against Pakistan Cricket team for losing world cup match against India!
Akmal’s criticism arose from the fact that captain Sarfaraz Ahmed chose to bowl first despite winning the toss and knowing that the strategy has not favoured them previously.
"Pakistan has not won any match in the World Cup where they opted to chase. The only victory for the greens caps came against the tournament favourites England, when we batted first and posted massive 300 plus runs on the board, while against West Indies, we were badly exposed and flattened at meagre 105. Our batting badly flopped and all the flaws were exposed by the opponents," Akmal told Pakistan's English daily 'The Nation'.
"I request Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is also Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) patron, to start ruthless accountability and all those, who inflicted huge damages on Pakistan cricket, must face the music. We are blessed with so many natural cricketers, who, if selected on merit, can strengthen Pakistan batting and bowling and can take Pakistan team to a much higher level," he added.
PCB had announced that it will hold a "robust review" of the Pakistan team and its support staff after the World Cup and submit its recommendations to PCB chairman Ehsan Mani and the Board of Governors (BoG), earlier on Wednesday.
The Sarfaraz-led team will next take on South Africa on June 23 at the Lord's.
