India, we have arrived. Are you ready? Shoaib Akhtar after Pakistan book a place in the T20 World Cup final

Former Pakistan pacemaker Shoaib Akhtar congratulated the Pakistani team for winning the semi-final against New Zealand with his inimitable style and at the same time challenged the Indian cricket team whom he hoped to see in the final. He also added that the ground for the final was the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), the same place where Pakistan defeated England to win the 1992 World Cup, so history could repeat itself.

“India, we have arrived. Are you ready? It’s the MCG and the 1992 World Cup winning moment could be recreated again. I am really looking forward to India reaching the final and playing against Pakistan,” said Akhtar.

Speaking of Pakistan’s victory, the pacemaker said on his YouTube channel: “Congratulations Pakistan. The Pakistan fans’ prayers were good because I didn’t think the Pakistan team would qualify. They lost to Zimbabwe and then I thought it was impossible for the Netherlands to beat South Africa. Thank you Pakistan. Thanks to you, I now believe that nothing can undo Pakistan now.”

“We have a habit of making a comeback. Cricket shows character and I think Pakistan has shown character. They overtook New Zealand,” she added.

Going into the technical aspects of Wednesday’s match, he said: “Losing the draw was a blessing in disguise for Pakistan. The ball didn’t get to the bat and it was also difficult to manage the rhythm. New Zealand was trying to get some big hits, but it wasn’t going well. In the evening, the ball slipped and did not cut, so Pakistan could easily recover in the match. He adjusted to both Pakistan starters as the ball began to hit the bat and they came back into form. Such a bad call and bad captaincy from a New Zealand perspective,” he said.
