One loss, many questions

As mentioned, the cricket fraternity in Pakistan has shown a strong reaction this time. On one hand, former skipper Younis Khan said, “What was most disappointing was the fact that there is a huge Pakistani community in the USA, which supports the team wholeheartedly.” Whereas former legendary Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram said, “It didn’t seem like Pakistan was playing against a team that has limited exposure against top teams.” He was also critical of the lack of effort on the field by some of the players.

What’s next for Pakistan?

With a game against India on June 9th. There is no question that, despite Pakistan’s previous performance against USA, India will not take the cornered tigers lightly.
