RAWALPINDI: Shoaib Akhtar aka Pindi Express suggested the Pakistan cricket team be focused on the upcoming T20 World Cup now.
Speaking on his Youtube channel, Akhtar bashed New Zealand Cricket (NZC) for canceling the Pakistan tour citing security concers.
“It is an embarrassing time for us. We can’t let it go. Security threats are everywhere in the world currently. Canceling this tour citing security concerns have embarrassed Pakistan worldwide,” he said.
“Now, it is the time to focus on the T20 World Cup. Just leave what happened, just try to prepare strongly, win the mega event and give an answer to the world,” he added.
It must be noted that Blackcaps will fly out of Pakistan within 24 hours after they ‘unilaterally decided to postpone Pakistan tour’.
They were visiting Pakistan for the first time in 18 years and were due to play three ODIs and five T20Is in Rawalpindi and Lahore.
