LAHORE: Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar slammed Pakistan cricket team for their humiliating defeat at the hands of archrivals India at the ICC World Cup match on Sunday at Old Trafford.
The outspoken Shoaib slammed skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed, calling him ‘brainless’ for opting to bowl first despite knowing that his side is not good while chasing targets. “I can’t understand how Sarfaraz can be so brainless when choosing to bowl first.
How could he forget that we don’t chase very well and when he knows our strength is not batting but bowling,” said Akhtar.
Sarfaraz won the toss and opted to bowl first, allowing India to score 336 runs on the board in their innings.
