The Indian cricket team may have lost the finals of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 but for their fans they are still the best team in the world and even former Pakistani cricketers are full of praise for Rohit Sharma-led squad.
The former Pak cricketer Wasim Akram praised not only the team but the Indian cricket system as well and he also remembered the 1999 World Cup final in which he led Pakistan against Australia and lost to Men in Yellow.
During a show, Wasim Akram stated, “Obviously they must be shattered to lose the final but in cricket these things happen. India had one bad day, and unfortunately, it came in the final. You look at their structure, the money for players, the well thought out programs and the backup talent and they really just need to continue doing these things. Their cricket is in a good place.”
Talking about the 1999 World Cup final, he said, “I was captain when we played them in the 1999 World Cup final and although we had beaten them in the league stage, in the final they were a different side just like yesterday in Ahmedabad.”
Truly, the Indian team had one bad day and unfortunately it was the final.
