India's Ganguly slaps Pakistan Cricket Board

India's Ganguly slaps Pakistan Cricket Board”

"Victory and defeat are part of any game but the manner in which we lost to India on Sunday without a fight was verypainful".

With India defeating arch-rivals Pakistan by 124 runs through Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method in the Champions Trophy encounter at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham on Sunday, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) acting president C.K. Khanna congratulated the team and expressed confidence that team would retain the Champions Trophy. Dropping India's most consistent and unsafe batsmen, Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh proved to be the ultimate difference between the two sides as both the players managed to accelerate in the later stages of the match by contributing a mammoth 93 runs for just 58 deliveries.

Shahid Afridi said the gap between the two sides is increasing.

Pakistan has shown such immaturity in run chase against India that it appeared as if we had raised our hands.

Umesh Yadav was the pick of the bowlers for India as he finished with the figures of three for 30 while Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya took two wickets each. Yet, instead of attacking them with the new ball, we choose to contain them.

One of the most common traits of Pakistan Cricket over the past few years has been the team's consistently dismal performance in the field. Sarfraz Ahmed must also be asked about the inclusion of an unfit Wahab Riaz over Junaid Khan because I am not buying the "Hasan-Junaid same type bowlers" theory by Mickey Arthur.

"It is astonishing that the coach does not see any difference between Junaid and Hassan".

What makes a match-winning unit is a combination of discipline, performance and balance. The only person who was hoping for Pakistan to bowl first at Edgbaston was Virat Kohli because the pitch was ideal for batting.

"What happened is shameful". India has evolved & we are way behind now. Wahab Riaz must retire if he has a little shame but we both know how the coach feels about him and Imad Wasim - the two English speaking individuals who don't seem to do justice with whatever talent the selectors believes they have. Yousuf called for sacking Arthur. If the country manages to defeat South Africa and Sri Lanka, it will reach to the semi finals.

"Pakistan needs to restructure its domestic system; you have to improve your First Class cricket".

Former captain Wasim Akram said: "The bitter truth is we are lagging behind them in many ways and we are not producing fearless players".

The 31-year-old left-arm quick suffered the setback while bowling during Pakistan's crushing 124-run defeat by title-holders India at Edgbaston on Sunday in what was the first match of the one-day worldwide tournament for both the arch-rivals.

He pointed out that India have many advantages over Pakistan as their captain is more mature and experienced as is their team. Pakistan is playing Babar Azam in such a big event at such a crucial position. It will take them, I don't know what to, get back to what they were about 15 years back.

An upset Saeed Ajmal said he couldn't understand what planning Pakistan ha done for the match.
