Pleased with Pakistan’s victory against SA, former speedster Shoaib Akhtar advises Pakistan to play fearless cricket in remaining games.
“I recommend Pakistan to hold their ground, play pressure-free cricket, play according to the best of their abilities and display their talent,” Akhtar said.
“Pakistan has a good chance of making it to the semifinals. They need to play fearless cricket without any pressure. If England loses their three matches against Australia, India and New Zealand, Pakistan can come through,” he further added.
With five points from six games, Pakistan is now at the seventh spot on the points table.
In the next encounter, Pakistan will be facing New Zealand on Wednesday.
If Pakistan manages to win all of the remaining three fixtures and results of matches of other teams go in Pakistan’s favour, the 1992 champions can secure a spot in the last four.
