Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has given some very funny advice to the Pakistan cricket team ahead of the India-Pakistan clash on Sunday in Dubai.
Amidst all the high-voltage and serious stuff, Akhtar decided to take things on a lighter note and told to Sportskeeda that the Pakistan team should give sleeping pills to Virat Kohli’s men. Secondly, they should stop Kohli himself from using Instagram and lastly they should request MS Dhoni to not come for batting.
I am telling you he’s still the most in-form batter, says Shoaib Akhtar
“Give sleeping pills to India first. Second, stop Virat Kohli from using Instagram for two days (chuckles). And third, ask MS Dhoni to not come to bat himself, I am telling you he’s still the most in-form batter,” Akhtar was quoted as saying to Sportskeeda.Advertisement
Pakistan Needs a Good Start from Batters
On a serious note, the Rawalpindi express told that Babar Azam and the top order needs to give their team a flying start so that the Indian team can be pushed to the backfoot.
“Pakistan needs to open in a manner where you can get a good start. Then, Pakistan will have to avoid dot balls, play run-a-ball for 5-6 overs then take the strike rate up. And when it comes to bowling, if you have a good total, then make sure you are out there and take wickets,” he added.
