Prime minister’s intervention urged to save Pakistan cricket

Former Pakistani wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal has joined other former Pakistani cricketers to criticize the national team for their devastating performance on world cup. Especially after the shameful defeat against the archrival India, the Pakistani former cricketers are calling for complete reform of Pakistan cricket.
Former cricketer Kamran Akmal has appealed to Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan for his personal intervention. Imran Khan himself is a former cricketer and considered as one of the greatest cricketing all-rounder in history. Imran Khan captained the 1992 Pakistan team which won the world cup.
Kamran Akmal said, Imran Khan is a patron of Pakistan Cricket Board and he should make accountable those who have destroyed Pakistan cricket. Kamran Akmal also criticized Sarfaraz Ahmed’s captaincy. Pakistan cricket had never crisis for talented cricketer. It’s the management which failed to utilize cricketers.
“Pakistan has not won any match in the World Cup, where they opted to chase. The only victory for the greens caps came against the tournament favourites England, when we batted first and posted massive 300 plus runs on the board, while against West Indies, we were badly exposed and flattened at meagre 105. Our batting badly flopped and all the flaws were exposed by the opponents,” Akmal told Pakistan’s English daily ‘The Nation’.
Pakistan Cricket Board has announced it will hold a “robust review” of the national team and it’s supporting staffs. Cricket committee chairman Mohsin Kahn has already submitted his resignation letter to board chairman Ehsan Mani.
