Will go for the kill against India: Sarfraz
Pakistan’s captain Sarfraz Ahmed admitted on Thursday that his team failed to execute the plan in its 41-run World Cup defeat against Australia in Taunton.
Sarfraz, who came under criticism for a series of poor decisions in Wednesday game, vowed that Pakistan would go for the kill in their eagerly awaited clash against India at Old Trafford on Sunday.
“All of us know how big the game against India will be at Old Trafford on 16 June. We will do our best preparation for that game. It will be a new game at a new venue, so we have to start it with a clean slate and go for the kill,” he wrote on his official column on the PCB website.
“I have full faith and confidence in my team and I am sure we will turn this around,” he stressed.
Sarfraz was blasted by many for his poor captaincy in the match. He conceded that his players lost the plot.
“Its all about execution of your plans and the team that executes their plans better, carries the day. That is the summary of our match against Australia. We implemented our plans partly, but not wholly and made more mistakes and that made the difference in the end.
