Pakistan’s cricket veterans have praised the Indian cricket team for their outstanding performance in the World Cup, despite their loss in the final against Australia. Wasim Akram acknowledged India’s strong position in the sport. He emphasized that setbacks like the final loss were part of the game, and reflected on India’s cricket infrastructure, highlighting the effective programs and depth of talent that keep Indian cricket thriving.
Akram was quoted as saying, “Obviously they must be shattered to lose the final but in cricket, these things happen. India had one bad day, and unfortunately, it came in the final.” He also noted India’s well-thought-out programs and the backup talent, and expressed the need for India to continue doing these things. He recalled the 1999 World Cup final and the transformation of the Indian team, comparing it to the recent loss in the World Cup final.
Rashid Latif echoed similar sentiments to Akram, pointing out that the Indian team’s capabilities were on par with the Australians and attributing the loss to psychological factors. He praised Mohammed Shami for his standout performance in the World Cup.
Former Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq praised Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli for their leadership, emphasizing that younger players must have learned a lot from them during the World Cup.
