"Make These Players Sit At Home": Wasim Akram Rips Apart Pakistan Cricket Team After T20 WC Loss vs India

Legendary Pakistan cricket team fast bowler Wasim Akram blasted Babar Azam and Co after their loss against India in the T20 World Cup 2024 on Sunday and even said that wicket-keeper batter Mohammad Rizwan has "no game awareness". This was Pakistan's second loss in two games as they were stunned by United States in their opening match of the competition. Akram was extremely critical of Pakistan's approach while chasing a modest target of 120 and said that Rizwan throwing away his wicket against India pacer Jasprit Bumrah was one of the moments that led to the defeat.

“He should have known that Bumrah was given the ball to take wickets and that the wise thing would have been to play his deliveries cautiously. But Rizwan went for a big shot and lost his wicket."

Akram also made a startling revelation that some cricketers in the national team do not speak to each other and suggested that such players should "sit at home" and not play for the nation.
