“If they lose from here and the USA beat Ireland, then Pakistan will have to play the World Cup qualifiers against Namibia and others next year for the 2026 World Cup. There can be no bigger shame than that. But they will have to play out of their skins to make the comeback. Hopefully, Babar can create some magic tomorrow. It will be challenging, but there is a chance. If they can beat India, the rest will be easy, and they will cruise through with extra motivation,”

I won’t let fans get disappointed too much because the two teams will play on drop-in pitches. Despite India’s advantages, the word is that the ball is seaming a lot and kicking through. So Pakistan has a chance. Trust me. Whenever we are down and out, Pakistan has always made a comeback. They need to play with a bit of daleri,”

he concluded.
