Pakistan’s iconic former fast bowler Waqar Younis did not shy away from his sharp assessment after Pakistan’s defeat to Afghanistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 match. Under the leadership of captain Babar Azam, the team lagged behind completely on the field. Fans and cricket pundits criticized the weak performance.
Afghanistan registered its first ODI win over Pakistan in eight matches. After the match, Waqar Younis, without saying anything, termed Pakistan’s poor performance as ‘rubbish cricket’.
Waqar Younis said on Star Sports. Talk about Pakistan cricket. They played a nonsense cricket match. Afghanistan played a great cricket match.
Pakistan’s Cricket World Cup journey is now in disarray after losing three out of five matches. Their next challenge is against South Africa at the same venue on Friday. Afghanistan, on the other hand, will be looking to take on Sri Lanka in Pune this Sunday on the back of two wins out of five matches.
