Sarfaraz Nawaz Criticizes Pakistan’s T20 World Cup Preparation and Strategy

Former Pakistan cricketer Sarfaraz Nawaz has raised serious concerns about the Pakistan cricket team’s preparation and strategy for the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, co-hosted by the USA and West Indies. In an exclusive interview with Cricket Pakistan, Nawaz identified several areas requiring significant improvement, particularly in fielding and middle-order batting. He emphasized that fielding has been subpar and the middle-order performance is inconsistent, while the openers’ reliability is also questionable. Nawaz criticized the team’s lack of a stable combination, stating that constant experimentation has hindered their development.

Nawaz also took aim at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and its selection decisions, calling for PCB chairman to grant full authority to skipper Babar Azam. He criticized the involvement of a group of seven decision-makers, arguing that their influence undermines the captain’s effectiveness. Nawaz highlighted the need for a dedicated wicketkeeper, advocating for Mohammad Rizwan to assume this role full-time. He also mentioned players like Salman Ali Agha and Sahibzada Farhan, who he believes should have been included in the squad due to their potential contributions.

Moreover, Nawaz condemned the favoritism in team selection, citing examples such as Azam Khan’s inclusion due to internal biases. He questioned the exclusion of players like Aamer Jamal, who had shown promise in previous performances. Nawaz argued that relying on just two all-rounders, Shadab Khan and Imad Wasim, is insufficient for a balanced team. He concluded by urging the PCB to address these issues to improve the team’s chances in the tournament.
