A former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif pointed out that both the Pakistani nation and its former players are unhappy with their team’s performance in the T20 World Cup 2024.

The Men in Green have participated in three group matches, only managing to secure a win against Canada on Tuesday. However, they suffered significant losses against the USA by five runs in a Super Over tie and against India by six runs.

There are certain conditions under which Pakistan can progress to the next stage of the tournament. These include Ireland defeating the USA in Florida on Friday (June 14), followed by Pakistan beating Ireland on Sunday (June 16).

When Muhammad Kaif was asked on Star Sports about the reaction of Pakistan’s fans to the weather forecast in Florida, he responded that the fans are not pleased with their team.

“The fans’ prayers are not with them. There is a commotion there. Who is supporting them? Everyone is standing against them, whether you talk about their former players, I am watching everything, no one is supporting them, although they have played extremely badly,” he responded.

“In the first match, Mohammad Amir was bowling wides in the Super Over. It was extremely poor bowling. You lost that match because of bowling. In the next match, they couldn’t chase 119. They batted badly and dropped catches. I understand they have defeated Canada but they didn’t do anything there for which you should praise them,” Kaif noted.

“Babar Azam was set [against India] and could have won the match. Mohammad Rizwan was also set. They lost the match because of batting where both batters were set. They disintegrate under pressure. They drop catches and are unable to bat under pressure,” he explained.

Furthermore, the cricketer mentioned that India has won six out of seven matches against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. The primary reason is that the Green Shirts drop many catches and struggle to chase runs.

However, he believes that the team has been lucky on several occasions, which has helped them advance.

“I will say one more thing. Luck works in their favour at times where Pakistan qualifies when they are virtually out. We have seen that many times. They haven’t played well but luck favours them. If the Ireland vs USA match happens and Ireland win and Pakistan win the next match, both will be at four points and it will go down to net run rate,” he stated during the same discussion.
