Former Pakistan leg-spinner Abdul Qadir believes that the national team shouldn’t be proud of their performance at the World Cup.
Qadir pointed out that even though Pakistan won their last four group stage matches, which came against South Africa, New Zealand, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, they still failed to make it to the semi-finals.
“It is unfortunate to see the reaction of the Pakistan players and PCB despite their poor performance in the 2019 World Cup,” he told cricketpakistan.com.pk. “If they think that winning the last four matches of their campaign was an achievement, [then] I have to say that they are totally wrong.
“Pakistan won against the weaker sides [in] the tournament in the second half of the World Cup. South Africa was already going through a bad patch while the win against Afghanistan was solely due to the prayers of the nation.”
