Pakistan’s cricket veterans have expressed their admiration for India’s outstanding performance in the World Cup, despite their loss to Australia. Wasim Akram acknowledged India’s strength in the sport and pointed out that setbacks like the final loss were a part of the game. He also praised India’s cricket infrastructure, highlighting the effective programs and depth of talent that keep Indian cricket thriving.
According to Akram, “Obviously they must be shattered to lose the final but in cricket, these things happen. India had one bad day, and unfortunately, it came in the final.” He emphasized the importance of Indian cricket continuing with its well-thought-out programs and backup talent. He compared India’s recent loss in the World Cup with their transformation in 1999, when they won their first title.
Rashid Latif echoed similar sentiments to Akram, stating that India’s capabilities were on par with Australia’s and attributing their loss to psychological factors. He also praised Mohammed Shami for his outstanding performance in the World Cup.
Former Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq praised Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli for their leadership skills, emphasizing that younger players must have learned a lot from them during the World Cup.
