Passions can only help us perform in World Cup: Wasim Bari


Karachi: Injury hit and struggling Pakistan cricket team can make a difference in the World Cup only with the passion they have kindling in their breasts otherwise there is little else to depend on, feels former Test cricketer Wasim Bari.

“There is only slight chance that we perform well in World Cup taking into account the injury problems and below par showings. The only way we could have our team put some impressive show is their passion to do well for the nation,” Wasim told a private news channel.

Pakistan team has been facing blows after blows with players facing suspension for illegal bowling actions to injury issues.

Pakistan’s top bowler Saeed Ajmal had to pull out of the World Cup following his suspension from bowling for illegal bowling action. Although he has now been cleared for bowling but it is highly unlikely he would be able to make the cut for World Cup.

Experienced Mohammad Hafeez has also been suspended for illegal bowling action and now he has been sent back home after he picked injury in a match against New Zealand and Nasir Jamshed has been sent to replace him.

Moreover, Pakistan’s frontline pacer Junaid Khan has also recently been ruled out of World Cup due to hamstring injury and rookie Rahat Ali has replaced him.
