Pakistan could only score 129 against Zimbabwe
Babar Azam and Rizwan failed in the second consecutive match
New Delhi. It has become very difficult for the Pakistan team led by Babar Azam to reach the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup. In a match of T20 World Cup 2022, Zimbabwe defeated Pakistan by one run in a thrilling match on Thursday. Pakistan’s team had to score 11 runs to win in the last over, but its players could score only 9 runs. Playing first in the match, Zimbabwe scored 130 runs for 8 wickets. In reply, Pakistan’s team could score only 129 runs by 8 wickets. This is the second consecutive defeat for Pakistan. Earlier, he had to be defeated by Team India in the last over.
Former veteran fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has expressed his disappointment over Pakistan’s defeat. He released a video on social media and said, “Very shameful defeat. And select Average People and Average Team Manager. PCB is also average. This is the result of that. He said that I am very disappointed. You lost to a team like Zimbabwe. Now you will also qualify very hard.

have to depend on others
Shoaib Akhtar said that now you have to depend on the results of other teams to qualify, but how did this situation come about. I said 2 months ago that you have selected average players and the result will also be average. It is to be known that Pakistan had won all its 5 matches of the Super-12 of the T20 World Cup held in Oman and UAE last year. The team also registered a big win over India by 10 wickets.
Pakistan lost 2 wickets in the last 2 balls, Zimbabwe snatched the match in the 20th over
Both Pakistan captain Babar Azam and wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan have not been able to perform anything special so far. He failed against both India and Zimbabwe. Shan Masood played an important role in taking the team to the right position by batting well in both the matches.
