I am proud of Pakistan, says Wasim Akram - Cricket News Update
The former Pakistan captain,, is proud of the Pakistan team for silencing the British media. Pakistan grabbed victory from the jaws of defeat as they defeated the world No.1 side England in the second Test match of the series.
Having won the opening two games of the ongoing three-match Test series against England, Pakistan holds an invincible 2-0 lead in the series.
This is the first time since the infamous 2010 series that the two teams are playing against each other. Pakistan’s 2010 tour of England was marred by the spot-fixing scandal embroiling three Pakistan players, the then Test captain, Mohammad
Asif and, with the British media playing a key role in that controversy.
This is also the first Test series England is playing after they overtook India as the No.1 Test side in the world. So far they have not lived up to the status quo.
Relieved to see Pakistan back on the winning track, Akram feels his compatriots have avenged the 2010 series
"After going through a lot of trouble and being slammed by the media, they are back to winning ways,” said the 45-year-old legendary pacer while speaking to media reporters on Monday.
“I always believed that Pakistan have the talent and the ability and now they have answered the British media who were overtly critical of them," he added further.
Pakistan has been in world class form so far in this series. They defeated England comprehensively in Dubai by 10 wickets, and via a gutsy batting and bowling performance in the second Test at Abu Dhabi, the team successfully defended 145 runs against
England in the fourth innings, to win by 72 runs.
He also questioned’s status as the No.1 team in the world, saying a side cannot claim to be numero uno if they cannot perform consistently at home and abroad.
Commenting on that India should prepare turning tracks while hosting teams like Australia.
"I always believe in home advantage. If rely on green pitches then the sub-continent teams can make turning tracks too. There is nothing wrong with that," said Akram.
