After Pakistan’s unexpected one-run loss to Zimbabwe on the last ball of their T20 World Cup Super 12 Group 2 match on Thursday in Perth, both spectators and analysts sharply criticized Pakistan. Babar Azam and the rest of the team have been under fire from Wasim Akram, Shoaib Malik, Waqar Younis, and Misbah-ul-Haq among others for their streak of World Cup defeats, which has put their chances of reaching the semi-finals in jeopardy. Shoaib Akhtar, a former Pakistani speedster, was forthright in his assessment of Pakistan’s defeat at the Optus Stadium in Perth, but the audience wasn’t as enthusiastic with his subsequent forecast. Akhtar predicts that both Pakistan and India would lose their quarterfinal games in the T20 World Cup Super 12 stage.” Pakistan was originally advised that they would be arriving back this week. India will make a comeback the week after they compete in the semifinals. Akhtar’s YouTube account has a message that states, “India is not an unbeatable squad, and we are far worse. Voh bhi koi Tees Maar Khan nahi hai.

India currently leads Group 2 after beating both the Netherlands and Pakistan in quick succession. Since Bangladesh and Zimbabwe are their next two opponents, the Rohit Sharma-led side would almost surely move to the semifinals if they overcome South Africa in their next match on Sunday.

Pakistan, which finished second in this group, will also be hoping that India wins its remaining matches so they can win three games in a row and get to the semifinals.

The Men in Green played well with the ball, holding Zimbabwe to 129/8, but their batters blew the chance to score runs, leading to a one-run loss for them. Pakistan has never before missed the lowest goal in a T20 World Cup. Akhtar claims that Babar Azam is a “bad captain” and that their middle order may need some work.

“I’ve been saying it all the time, we can’t win at this level with these openers and the middle order. How do I phrase this? The captain of Pakistan is untrustworthy. Pakistan was eliminated from the world cup in the second game against Zimbabwe. Babar says, “Come one down,” but he’s not listening. Shaheen Afridi is seriously out of shape. a significant leadership flaw.

What kind of cricket are you looking to play? I pray you didn’t lose to Zimbabwe. Don’t you realize how you’re playing cricket? Both the PCB chairman and management are stupid. We had to utilize four bowlers, and three of them were rapid bowlers. When a proper middle order is necessary, you are selecting something else, the guy retorted.

Shan Masood starting for Pakistan in their first two games rather than Fakhar Zaman, according to Akhtar, was a mistake.

“We needed two strong openers who can successfully utilize the 30-yard circle. Fakhar Zaman, who is now sitting there, wasn’t used. He uses his back foot when he plays and would be successful in Australia. It is quite embarrassing. In the end, we have to deal with the media, not you. Where we must sit is in India. We must react to the queries of the globe. What options do we now have? No middle order, no preparations, and no openers… I predicted that if Zimbabwe bowled length balls, they would win this game. He said, “I don’t believe in this squad.
