Former fast-bowler Wasim Akram expressed concerns over Pakistan’s current form in ODIs, stating that the national team is playing matches like it was in the 1990s.
Pakistan, who are currently on tour of England, lost the first two matches of the five-match ODI series by wide margins. In both ODIs, the visitors batted first, reaching a total of 260 and 251 respectively.
Speaking to a local channel, the legendary bowler said that the team’s mentality is archaic for modern cricket. “Our psyche is that of the 1990s,” he said. “We have to realise that a score of 260-270 just isn’t good enough. Even a 290-run target is easily achievable these days.”
