Former cricketer feels the Men in Green didn’t play to their full potential in the first ODI
Former cricketer Inzamamul Haq believes Pakistan will bounce back in the second ODI of the three-match series against England on Saturday at Lord’s.
Pakistan were outplayed in the first match of the three-game ODI series on Thursday, after losing in convincing fashion by nine wickets.
“Pakistan’s performance wasn’t up to the mark but after a long time the Pakistan team looked like a team to me. People will find it odd since they got out on 142. However, when I saw the entire Pakistan line-up, it looked like a team. Although they won in South Africa, but they didn’t look like a team there and were heavily dependent on one or two players,” Inzamam said on his YouTube channel.
Inzamam feels the Men in Green didn’t play to their full potential in the first ODI.
“Don’t focus too much on first ODI’s performance but overall I am very hopeful that this Pakistan team will perform a lot better,” he said.
“My message to Babar Azam is to keep your team motivated. These types of performances can happen. Big teams are those that make a comeback after this sort of performance. I can criticize their performance but I think this team is a lot better than what they showed in first ODI,” he concluded.
The second match of the three-game series will be played at Lord’s on Saturday.
