Legendary West Indies batsman Sir Viv Richards lavished praise on Pakistan after their superb World Cup win over England on Monday.
Richards was extremely impressed with the way in which Pakistan bounced back from their seven-wicket loss to the West Indies.
Pakistan were skittled out for 105 in that game, but scored 348/8 against England and held on to claim a 14-run win.
Well done @SarfarazA_54 & team. What a win against the hosts. Keep up the momentum boys.

“What a wonderful win for Pakistan. I know for sure that there were a lot of doubts today. To beat the favourites I think is a magnificent win for Pakistan especially the way in which they played against the West Indies,” Richards said in a video posted on his Twitter account.
Pakistan’s next World Cup game will be against Sri Lanka in Bristol on Friday.
