Pakistan’s desolate World Cup campaign has been a culmination of its sporadic and disorganized schedule as set by ICC, a team member exclaimed on Monday.
As the Express Tribune reported, the team member had iterated that Pakistan’s schedule was the most strenuous handed out to the participating teams in world cup, further stating that they had to frequently commute between Australia and New Zealand after almost every match.
The team member further stated that India had a fairly comfortable schedule with four straight matches in Australia followed by their final two in New Zealand in the group stage, thus ensuring a singular trip from Australia to New Zealand.
He further added that Pakistan have had to perpetually adjust to the variable playing conditions in both Australia and New Zealand which has had adverse impacts on them.
Pakistan somehow scraped to a 20 run-win against Zimbabwe in their previous world cup encounter, following two indecorous losses to India and the West Indies in their first two matches.
Pakistan shall next lock horns with the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday in their fourth Pool B match at Napier, New Zealand.
