Sanjay Manjrekar believes Pakistani fans would be in a shock to see consistency from the Babar Azam-led team in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021. Pakistan are playing in the UAE for years but the kind of performance they have shown in the global event was not expected from them. Pakistan have won four consecutive matches in the showpiece event of the shortest format.
Speaking about Pakistan’s performance, the former India player said – “Pakistan is on a golden run. Who would’ve thought that? Their fans would be somewhat shellshocked to see their team being so consistent. There have been a couple of nervy chases, though not against India.”
The former cricketer-turned-expert lauded Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan for their bowling in the tournament.
“Pakistan’s bowling is also looking fantastic. Their spinners in Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan are capable spinners. And that is the thing about Pakistan, they are not very highly skilled or have classical actions, but they are very street smart bowlers. They know where to put the ball and don’t get hit. They know how to survive in this kind of a format.”
