Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has promised Pakistani-Americans that he is working on a plan to develop the “best cricket team of the world” following the debacle of the country in the recently-concluded ICC World Cup 2019 in the UK.
The cricketer-turned-politician said this while addressing a gathering of Pakistani-Americans at Capital One Arena in downtown Washington DC on Sunday.
Referring to the debacle of the Pakistani team in the recently-concluded ICC World Cup cricket tournament, Khan said that he has “started working on developing the best cricket team of the world in the next tournament, by bringing the best players in the team”.
“Remember my words,” the prime minister, who led Pakistan to victory at the 1992 Cricket World Cup, said. Khan, however, did not divulge details about his plans.
Imran Khan spoke about the country’s cricket team and to vanish their fear of losing to India in the crucial game at ICC World cup on June 16th, and ended saying that “fear had headed them to a negative impact and made them play on defensive strategy”.
Former Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Najam Sethi has blamed the present management for the downfall of the team.
Pakistan was unable to make into the top four of the league table. They have ended in the fifth position of the table based on their net run rate.
