Former Pakistan batsman Imran Nazir has admitted that the bowlers will have to be “disciplined” if the national team wants to do well at the World Cup.
Nazir’s comments come after Pakistan’s dismal bowling performances in the ongoing ODI series against England.
Pakistan let England score 373/3 in the second ODI, failed to defend 358 in the third ODI and also couldn’t defend 340 in the fourth match on Friday.
“The bowling needs to be disciplined, because every player these days has the ability to hit hard so we will have to bowl very accurately,” Nazir told Geo.tv. “Pakistan’s side is very balanced. The [batsmen are] in good form and I hope Pakistan will do well in the tournament.”
After the ongoing five-match ODI series against England, Pakistan will play two World Cup warm-up games against Afghanistan and Bangladesh in Bristol and Cardiff on May 24 and 26 respectively.
They will then begin their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on May 31.
