Legendary Pakistan pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar was less than impressed with the national team’s batting performance in their World Cup opener against the West Indies.
The men in green were looking to start their World Cup campaign on a high, but they were skittled out for a dismal score of 105.
Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam were the top scorers as they both made 22 runs, while Wahab Riaz chipped in with a quickfire 18 at the end.
Mohammad Hafeez was the only other batsman to reach double figures as he made 16.

Describing Pakistan’s abysmal batting performance on Twitter, Akhtar simply said: “Speechless.”
Pakistan went on to demolish Pakistan by seven wickets.
Pakistan’s next match will be against hosts England in Nottingham on June 3, while the West Indies will take on Australia at the same venue on June 6.
