Pakistan cricket team vice-captain Shadab Khan has blamed his non-performance behind the team’s failure after they were eliminated from the 2023 ICC Men’s World Cup.
The 25-year-old cricketer said the team, including the coaching staff, strives to win every tournament. Everyone, he added, is disappointed with the World Cup performance, but the lesson in cricket is to always improve.
“I am also disappointed with myself, I didn’t live up to expectations. I had to play. I think my non-performance brought the team here. If I had played as a bowler, the result could have been different,” said Vica Captain, speaking in Geo News.
Shadab reiterated that it is very important for him to perform, sharing that he will return to Pakistan and analyze the mistakes he has made in the mega cricket match.
“We made a lot of mistakes and there were weaknesses, that’s why we were bowled out. We failed in all three areas but the bowlers didn’t perform much. You have to play according to cricket. And in batting, you have to play according to modern cricket,” he said.
Shadab added that the captain is not solely responsible for winning or losing, everyone has a role to play, but our culture is such that everything is blamed on the captain.
“We didn’t play well as a team. We’re all responsible,” he said.
After their incredibly disappointing performance in the ongoing World Cup in India, the Pakistan team will fly out of India in two groups as the Green Shirts’ journey in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup came to an end on Saturday.
In the final group match, England defeated Pakistan by an impressive 93 runs at the Edens Gardens in Kolkata, with the Green Shirts crashing out of the mega tournament.
The first batch of 11 team members will depart from Kolkata at 8:55 am. tomorrow (Sunday) via Emirates flight EK571. The remaining members will fly from Kolkata at 08:20 PM. on the same day via Emirates flight EK573. After landing in Dubai, players and team members will depart for their respective cities.
