Former Pakistan fast bowler Waqar Younis has slammed the Babar Azam-led side for their six-run defeat to India in the T20 World Cup clash, saying what can he comment if the team can’t win despite bowling out the opposition for 119.


Pakistan were 72-2 at the end of 12 overs, with Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman at the crease. But with the duo being dismissed in quick succession, Pakistan were strangled under pressure by India, as rest of the batters failed to rise to the occasion and ended up at 113-7.


“I think India gave Pakistan a good chance of winning by batting poorly. They could have easily put up maybe 140-150. Losing those seven wickets right at the end didn’t really help. However, India are such a good balanced side.


“If they don’t bat well, they know they have [Jasprit] Bumrah, [Mohammed] Siraj, Ravindra [Jadeja]—they have their bowling and fielding also really covered, which makes them a super team,” Waqar told Star Sports.

“Pakistan—if you can’t win this game, what should I say? This was given to you on a plate and Pakistan really spilled it. It was a horrible performance by the Pakistani batters. There were a few partnerships in the beginning but they couldn’t really finish the game,” he added.
