Pakistan Suffers Third Consecutive World Cup Defeat

Pakistan suffered its third consecutive defeat in the present World Cup, and captain Babar Azam expressed dissatisfaction with the team's performance.

Pakistan faced its third consecutive loss in the ongoing World Cup, and the team’s captain, Babar Azam, expressed disappointment in the team’s performance, particularly in the field. He cited the bowling attack as a significant area of concern.

Bowlers Struggle in World Cup Matches:

After losses to India and Australia, Pakistan’s bowlers had another disappointing performance, failing to exert pressure on the Afghan batters despite defending a total of 283 on a challenging Chennai pitch.

Afghanistan secured an emphatic eight-wicket victory over Pakistan, marking their first-ever win against their neighbors in 50-over cricket. They outplayed Pakistan in all three departments.

Babar Azam’s Assessment:

Babar Azam expressed his disappointment, saying, “This defeat hurts.” The team believed they had posted a competitive total but couldn’t deliver in the bowling department. They struggled to take wickets in the middle overs and control the scoring rate.

Deficiency in Bowling and Fielding:

According to Babar Azam, not delivering in one department can lead to a loss, and in this case, Pakistan couldn’t stop boundaries and gave away easy runs. 

He highlighted the need for improvement in bowling and fielding to compete effectively in the tournament.

Babar Azam emphasized the importance of tightening up the middle overs, with the spinners not bowling as tightly as they should have. 

More dot balls were needed to create pressure and put the opposition’s batters under stress. 

Pakistan’s performance in the World Cup has raised concerns, and they currently sit fifth on the points table following three consecutive defeats.
