Prior to the 2023 Cricket World Cup, an ex-Pakistani star issued a dire warning, saying, "Going To Get Thrashed Badly"

Prior to the 2023 Cricket World Cup, an ex-Pakistani star issued a dire warning, saying, “Going To Get Thrashed Badly”. Due to two losses in the Super 4 round, Pakistan’s performance in the 2023 Asia Cup was not excellent. The Babar Azam-led team was unable to advance to the final. While they were completely outplayed by India, who defeated them by 228 runs, the loss to Sri Lanka came after a hard-fought game that was decided on the final ball. 

The team’s batting and bowling were underwhelming, and former Pakistan cricketer Kamran Akmal thinks that if they don’t make mental changes before the Cricket World Cup 2023, they could get “thrashed badly” by rivals India and other teams.

“Mohammed Shami is not a member of this starting XI; he is on the bench. That demonstrates that it is an entire bowling unit. It appears to be a strong batting team because Shubman Gill recently struck a century, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma are in good form. I’ll simply say that the Pakistani team needs to prepare exceptionally well for the match we have on October 14 in order to put the opposition under strain,” Kamran stated on his own YouTube channel.

“They’re going to get horribly smashed if they play with the same mentality as the Asia Cup and the way we played over the past three years. They must make excellent preparations.

Javed Miandad and Misbah ul Haq, two Pakistani cricketing giants, backed Babar Azam on Tuesday, saying the captain shouldn’t be held solely responsible for the lackluster performance.

Both Miandad and Misbah counseled the nation’s cricket leaders not to worry when speaking to the media. When the rest of the team struggled in the Asia Cup matches against India and Sri Lanka, Miandad questioned why only Babar Azam was to blame.

Both of the legends, who have participated in World Cups in India, also gave the players the advice to avoid letting the prospect of competing in the mega-event there impact them psychologically.

“Look, our team has improved from how it performed during the Asia Cup. It has a great deal of opportunity to perform well at the World Cup. The only question is how quickly our players acclimate to playing in India in front of large spectators and in a place where they may experience some antagonism, according to Miandad.
