Singles and Doubles Won’t Win You Games: Imad Wasim
After an embarrassing defeat against Zimbabwe, criticism flooded on the Pakistan team’s intent. A lot of former players and even current players criticized Pakistan’s slow style of play in the World T20 2022. All-Rounder Imad Wasim said that the team has to dominate PowerPlay overs. “It does not matter how big the boundary is, you have to stay positive and play aggressive cricket”, Imad added.
He further said that if the intent of the batters is to survive only, then they will struggle for sure. However, if the team looks to score right from ball one, they will get singles, doubles and boundaries for sure.
Moreover, Imad also highlighted that Zimbabwe dominated the PowerPlay by scoring 47 runs and Pakistan only managed 28, hence, Zimbabwe won. Imad Wasim emphasized the need to score big right from the start and he also said that the team which manages more boundaries and has a better intent will win the mega event.
Pakistan suffered a close defeat against Zimbabwe. However, looking at the star players that Pakistan have, it was indeed an embarrassing defeat for them as they failed to chase 131 and that too against a lower ranked side.
Pakistan’s chances of qualifying for the semi-finals have also got thinner and now they are reliant on the results of other matches to go in their favor so that they can qualify for the next round.
