Ex-India cricketer turned pundit Sanjay Manjrekar believes that Pakistan’s approach to having a deep batting foundation may not be the right thing to do in T20 cricket.
Pakistan secured a massive 155-run win over Hong Kong on Friday to advance to the Super 4 stage of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022. Speaking on Star Sports after the match, former cricketer Wasim Akram also highlighted how he wasn’t impressed with Mohammad Rizwan’s unbeaten knock of 78.
Pakistan’s middle order needs more exposure; trying to build too deep a foundation
Taking to his Twitter account earlier today (Saturday), Manjrekar pointed out that Pakistan can improve as a team once their middle-order batters get more exposure.
Manjrekar wrote on Twitter: “Have one observation on Pakistan’s T20 cricket. They are laying too deep a foundation. For a 20-over innings, it’s unnecessary. What’s more it will give more opportunity to no 4,5,6 thereby making Pakistan a more wholesome batting unit, a better T20 side.”
