‘Hum qudrat kay nizam ki waja se final mein…’: the shocking comment of the former PAK star in WC | Cricket

Despite staging a late comeback in the 2022 edition of the T20 World Cup, Babar Azam-led Pakistan were unable to end their trophy drought at the biggest stages of all. Champions in the 2009 edition of the ICC World T20, Pakistan secured their spot for the knockout phase after South Africa were knocked out of the T20 World Cup on the final day of the Super 12 phase.

The Proteas suffered an embarrassing defeat at the hands of the Netherlands which paved the way for the Green Army to revive their World Cup campaign in Australia. Pakistan defeated Bangladesh in the virtual quarterfinals to set up a date with the Kane Williamson-led New Zealand in the semifinals. Although Pakistan was very lucky on their way, the Green Army fell short of expectations when Babar and company were bested by England in the World Cup final.

speaking to ARY news Following the T20 World Cup summit clash, former Pakistani cricketer Tanveer Ahmed shared his honest assessment of Pakistan’s bittersweet campaign in Australia. “Hum yaha tak aye, hum koi apni performances ki wajah se yaha tak nahi phochey. Hum qudrat kay nizam ki waja say final mein pohnchay. South Africa hara Netherlands se, uske baad humney impulse pakda, lekin we se pehle hum bilkul es tournament se bahar ho chukey them. Aur ye har dafah, har ICC kay event mein ye silsila chalta rehta hai (Us [Pakistan] reached the knockout stage, not because of our performances. Due to the law of nature, Pakistan reached the final of the World Cup. After South Africa lost to the Netherlands, Pakistan managed to gain momentum in the World Cup. However, prior to the Dutch upset, Pakistan had no chance of reaching the semi-finals. Such has been the history of Pakistani cricket when it comes to ICC events),” Ahmed said.

The former Pakistani cricketer also questioned Babar’s captaincy credentials after England defeated Pakistan by 5 wickets in the T20 World Cup final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Sunday. The former cricketer and full-time cricketer was surprised to see Mohammad Nawaz fail to bowl a single in the summit clash. Ahmed also predicted that the injured Shaheen Shah Afridi will miss the next edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Nawaz se bowling nahi karwayi gayi. Nawaz humey bilkul side mein nazar aye. Adil Rashid ka bhi ball spin hua, Mujhe laga Nawaz se bhi bowl karayi jaygi. Shaheen jo unfit huey, wo 2 overs shayad unkey hotey to wo wicket bhi le saktey they. Unko hit maarna itna asaan bhi nahi hota. Jaha tak mujhe lag rha hai inka PSL a gaya (Nawaz did not play in the final. He was cast aside by Babar. Since Rashid had some purchase, I thought that Babar will use Nawaz. And Shaheen would have taken a wicket in his remaining 2 overs had he not been injured. In regards to his injury, I feel like his PSL season is almost over),” he concluded.
