The Cricket World Cup 2019 is less than a month away and former cricketers have started weighing in on Pakistan’s chances at the mega event.
Former Pakistan all-rounder, Abdul Razzaq, has said that selfless cricket can bring Pakistan honors at the mega event. He said this in an interview with a local news outlet.
Selfless cricket will be the key as players who keep their country before anything else are likely to be successful. Players need to give World Cup its due importance because it’s a major tournament.
He added that like every Pakistani, he wants Pakistan to do well at the mega event and return with the prestigious trophy.
Talking about the team sent in for the World Cup, the 39-year-old expressed his satisfaction, saying:
Selectors have selected a good bunch of players with the right combination but it’s a mega event and there will be a lot of pressure on players to perform.
He was of the view that the cricketing experts in the country need to give some time to Imran Khan’s proposed plans for domestic cricket’s restructuring.
We should give the new board and Patron-in-Chief Imran Khan’s plans some time rather than totally brushing it aside.
He went on to say that he plans to continue his association with the game by becoming a professional coach.
