IMRAN KHAN ADVISES PAKISTAN TEAM
In order to have a winning attacking strategy in ICC World Cup Sarfaraz must go in with specialist batsmen and bowlers because “Raillu Kattas” rarely perform under pressure – especially the intense kind that will be generated today, Unless pitch is damp, Sarfaraz must win the toss & bat,” tweeted PM Khan on his official Twitter account.
KHAN praised Sarfaraz Ahmed for being bold and called the team lucky to have such a leader. Furthermore, he tinted that talent or skills will not decide the most anticipated game of the World Cup, instead the mental strength will prove to be the decisive factor.
When I started my cricketing career I assumed success was 70% talent & 30% mind. By the time I finished playing cricket I felt it was 50-50 ratio. But now I tend to agree with my friend Gavaskar it’s 60% mental strength & 40 % talent. Today role of mind will be more than 60%,” he wrote. “Today, given the intensity of the match, both teams will come under great mental pressure and the power of the mind will decide the outcome of the match today.”
KHAN further urged the team to not come under pressure for being the underdogs in this game, he asked the players to give their 100 per cent in the match and accept the end result like a true sportsman.
Finally, even though India may be the time favorites ICC World Cup, banish all fear of losing, but today Pakistan will win. Just give your best and fight till the last ball. Then accept whatever the result like true sportsmen. The nation’s prayers are with all of you. Good Luck,” he wrote. The hyped up contest will kick off at 2:30 PM (PST) at Manchester, while the toss will take place at 2:00 PM.
