Pak vs Zim: What experts have to say?

Thursday has not ended for the men in green on a good note. They failed to manage things against Zimbabwe, which caused them to face a second-consecutive defeat in the Super 12 match of the T20 World Cup 2022.

Although bowlers did great with the courtesies of Shadab Khan’s three-wicket haul, Haris Rauf’s one for 12, and especially Wasim Jnr’s four-wicket haul contributed to restricting Zimbabwe to 130. But, the bowling line-up failed to do big things after Mohammad Rizwan, and Babar Azam collapsed.

Shan Masood’s contributions went in vain as Shaheen Shah Afridi’s run out, in the end, became the matter of why Zimbabwe won just by one run. With three of two needed, Brad Evans targetted Mohammad Nawaz, leaving behind three of one.

The nailbiting situation saw the on-pitch batters trying to run for two, but unlucky Shaheen was run-out as a result of Sikandar Raza’s efforts. The thrilling match has left post-match debates for the fans and experts to discuss.

Here is how former cricketers and journalists are reacting:

The former Pakistani player, who is now an analyst, is left speechless.

Unlike others, Ahmed Shahzad has shown his full support for the men in green.

Former Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has called the defeat ’embarrassing’.

Mohammad Amir, an ex-Pakistani cricketer, has been in controversies from Day 1. This time, he has pointed out chairman Ramiz Raja for the team’s loss against Zimbabwe.

Shoaib got no chill and narrated that things won’t happen spontaneously, but the team will have to do effort even if it is Zimbabwe in front of them.

Journalist Farid Khan tweeted the scenario that Pakistan prays for India to win against South Africa so they can have a chance in the tournament.

He shared further scenario, tweeting that,

Dr Nauman Niaz was just like every one of us and said that he has no words left.

Ihtisam ul Haq related the political situation of the country, saying the day was not good for Pakistan after all.

Arfa Feroz Zake tells feelings of every one of us that how defeat versus Zimbabwe can decide our feat in the last match of the Super 12.

Another local journalist, Farid Khan, defined the Qualification scenario for Pakistan for the T20 World Cup 2022 semifinals. It is as follows.

Statistician Mazher Arshad has termed the T20 World Cup 2022 as a remarkable tournament. While praising Sikandar’s heroics, he tweeted,

Journalist Arfa has been posting back-to-back sensible tweets, one of which highlights how lightly Pakistan have taken underdog teams.
