LAHORE: Twenty captain Shahid Afridi said that former greats Imran Khan and Wasim Akram would motivate the team ahead of World Twenty20 games in India.
His statement on social media came hours after the government cleared ways for the team to travel to India.
Afridi urged fans to back the team for the mega event being played in India. “We want to leave behind the uncertainty and concerns in India,” he said.
“We only want to focus on cricket and winning. Keep supporting the green team,” Afridi tweeted.
The T20 skipper admitted that Pakistan had been unimpressive in recent matches, but he added that team was ready for the mega event. “We haven’t done well in recent matches. But for WorldT20, we are ready,” he said.
He further said that batsmen must take responsibility and score enough for bowlers to defend.
