Former Pakistan captain Aamir Sohail has questioned what the national team’s strategy is going into the World Cup.

Sohail feels that no real gameplan has been confirmed ahead of the tournament, and feels that it would lead to Pakistan running into trouble during the showpiece event.

With Pakistan currently playing a five-match ODI series against England, Sohail noted that the men in green need to confirm a strategy and stick with it during the World Cup.

“If batting is our weakness and we think that bowling is our strength then we should develop a strategy that our batsmen should set a target and then our bowlers are responsible to win us the match, or our bowers if bowling first should be able to restrict the opposition [to] a total which does not put pressure on our batsmen,” he was quoted as saying by the Business Recorder.

He also raised doubts about whether Pakistan has done anything to improve the team since winning the Champions Trophy in England in 2017.

“What have we done after winning the 2017 Champions Trophy? Have we tried to improve ourselves and our team,” he said.

Pakistan will kick off their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on May 31.
