For the first time in their history, Pakistan have lost 4 consecutive games at a World Cup. They have been beaten by India, Australia, AFG & SA
Except for SA game, formidable Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi looked off-colour. While Afridi has shown glimpses, Rauf has conceded most 6s in WC 2023
PAK spinners have struggled! Shadab Khan, Usama Mir, Mohammad Nawaz, Iftikhar Ahmed have conceded 710 runs, taking just 8 wkts
Young pacer who played perfect supporting role to Shaheen was ruled out with shoulder injury just before WC and PAK are missing him dearly!
Pakistan have lost 4 games on the trot and are on the verge of elimination. PCB has also clearly said that Babar Azam's captainship is on the line
Babar may be top of ODI charts but his performance at WC has been shoddy. He has only collected 207 runs (6 games) at an avg of 34, SR less than 80
Before World Cup began, Pakistan had 3 batters in ODI's ICC Top 10 rankings - Babar Azam, Imam ul Haq, Fakhar Zaman. But none shone at WC stage.
