‘Fans’ prayers are not with them’: Mohammad Kaif calls out lack of support for Pakistan team in T20 World Cup campaign | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif expressed disappointment over the lack of support for the Pakistan team during the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup. According to him, neither their fans nor former players were backing the team. Kaif acknowledged that Pakistan had not performed well in the tournament.
The team, led by Babar Azam, was eliminated after the USA vs Ireland Group A match was abandoned due to rain in Lauderhill, Florida, on Friday.

Pakistan lost their first two group matches against co-hosts USA and arch-rivals India. They managed to stay in contention by defeating Canada in their third game, but their fate was no longer in their hands.
“The fans’ prayers are not with them. There is a commotion there. Who is supporting them? Everyone is standing against them, whether you talk about their former players, I am watching everything, no one is supporting them, although they have played extremely badly,” Kaif said on Star Sports.

Kaif criticized veteran pacer Mohammad Amir for conceding too many extras in the Super Over against the USA.
“In the first match, Mohammad Amir was bowling wides in the Super Over. It was extremely poor bowling. You lost that match because of bowling. In the next match, they couldn’t chase 119. They batted badly and dropped catches. I understand they have defeated Canada but they didn’t do anything there for which you should praise them,” Kaif observed.

“Babar Azam was set (against India) and could have won the match. Mohammad Rizwan was also set. They lost the match because of batting where both batters were set. They disintegrate under pressure. They drop catches and are unable to bat under pressure,” he concluded.
