Akmal who regularly appears in ARY News cricketing show ‘Har Lamha Purjosh’ while commenting on England’s 15 run defeat to a lesser rival Bangladesh said that changing the English cricket team’ captain at the eleventh hour cost the cricket’s mother nation a defeat against the late comers Bangladesh.
He also pointed out that Pietersen and Cook’s absence ruined the team combination of England’s World Cup XI.
The other cricketing expert, former batsman Basit Ali while lamenting upon the loss told the host Umer Shareef and audience that England has the most developed cricketing structure.
It must be noted that Eoin Morgan was appointed as England captain only a few weeks ago when his predecessor, Alastair Cook, was axed.
England team were taken to task by their own media and cricketing experts for losing their World Cup Pool A match to Bangladesh, resulting in their ouster from the biggest event of the cricketing world.
Surely you don’t need to look at any Data to tell you that 275 is chase able against Bangladesh….!!!
