“Average Mindset, Average Results,” Says Shoaib Akhtar After Pakistan’s Shocking Loss

Islamabad [Pakistan]: Pakistan’s shocking one-run defeat against Zimbabwe at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup sent murmurs around the world as former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar lashed out at Babar Azam and Co, saying he had feared such a thing would happen.

Notably, the former Pakistan pacer had earlier predicted that Pakistan may be knocked out in the first round itself. Pakistan’s over-reliance on their opening batting pair came back to haunt them as Zimbabwe pipped them in a low-scoring thriller by one run to clinch their first Super-12 win of the ongoing T20 World Cup on Thursday at the Perth Stadium.

Pakistan made a mess of a paltry chase as they suffered a batting collapse and left their bowlers to chase and win the match for them. All-rounder Sikandar Raza took three wickets in a short span to dismantle the chase.

“That’s embarrassing, to be most polite!” he had tweeted first.

He then followed it with his match analysis and said that nothing can be done on its own, one needs to put in effort, he tweeted in Hindi.

“Agar Zimbabwe hai toh khud he ho jaaye ga sab kuch? Nahi, khud nahi hota, kerna parta hai,” he added in another tweet.

The former Pakistan pacer tweeted a video with the caption, “Average mindset, Average results. That’s the reality, face it.”

The former pacer also called out the choice of players for the tournament and stressed on the difficulty that the team may face in qualifying for the semi-finals.

In a video, he said, “Very very embarrassing. Keep on selecting average players and team management. This is the outcome. I am super disappointed. I mean losing against Zimbabwe? Now you are not even going to qualify with ease.”
