Former Test captain and legendary batsman Javed Miandad said that in order for Pakistan to do well in the upcoming T20 World Cup, each player must recognise their role in the team and contribute accordingly.

While speaking at the media at the Karachi Press Club, Miandad spoke about Pakistan’s chances in the mega event.

"The team needs to play with coordination. Each player needs to chip in with what they can because relying on 1 or 2 players will hurt Pakistan's chances in the World Cup," said Miandad.

Pakistan kicks off their campaign against a crunch match against India on October 24. Speaking about the fixture, Miandad said players need to put in a collective effort.

"The match against India needs to be played without fear and pressure. The players are not children, they have to develop confidence within themselves to overcome pressure situations and pressure matches," added Miandad.

The 64-year-old further stated that Pakistan needs to put up good performances and winning or losing should be a secondary matter.

"Pakistan batters need to play each ball on merit; the entire team needs to adopt that mentality and forget about money and if they play well, they will surely earn money," concluded Miandad.
