Atul Wassan told Indian players better
Afridi disagrees with Atul Wassan
Wassan said- Rizwan should also get credit
New Delhi: The Super-12 phase of the T20 World Cup 2022 has started. The fourth match of the prestigious tournament was played between India and Pakistan at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Prior to this match, during a panel discussion, former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi had disagreed on a statement made by the country’s former cricketer Atul Wasan.
Atul Wassan, Shahid Afridi and Kapil Dev were involved during a panel discussion on Sama TV. In the discussion, Atul Wassan had said that Indian players have established their reputation by winning important matches. Vasan also emphasized on how reliable players like KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya have been.

Vasan said, there are big names like Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul in the Indian team, and these big names are because they have performed consistently. That’s why they have a worldwide rating. Pakistani players have also done it. Pakistan has match winners in the form of Rizwan and Mohammad Nawaz, but they are not consistent. Rizwan won a match, Nawaz also won a match. Even though winning a match does not make a hero, but Mohammad Rizwan has performed in 3-4 matches, then he should definitely get the rating, but if you look at the stats against India, Rizwan is not such a big name. Afridi did not like this thing and he strongly disagreed on it.
Responding to Atul, Afridi said, ‘I do not understand what you are talking about right now. You have put your players on your head. Pakistan players who are at number one, two in the ICC rankings. They have been completely ignored.
