Pakistani Skipper Babar Azam in the line of fire

ISLAMABAD - Former Pakistan pace star Shoaib Akhtar was absolutely fuming with the Pakistan Cricket team disgraceful performance against Australia T20 series.

He took to social media to express his disbelief looking at how poor the national side has been performing for the past few months.

The "Rawalpindi Express" raised questions over the capacity of the current Pakistan team and said that the side needs to step up if they really want to contest with the top dogs in the upcoming T20I World Cup.

"Sad scenario Pakistan lost the game, it's not a very happy sign. You understand the capacity of the team and at the same time you can gauge the level of talent you have.

Now you can well understand where you are standing."

"World Cup is around the corner and before that, you have 8-9 T20I game left, do well I wish them best of luck," Akhtar said in a video shared by him on Twitter.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) recently sacked Sarfaraz Ahmed as the skipper after his side received a thumping against Sri Lanka in Lahore.

The Pak board went with Babar Azam as the new captain for the T20I series down under, but he has also failed to deliver with his team.
