Blunt Take of Shoaib Akhtar on Pakistan's defeat by India in the World Cup 2023

Former fast bowler of Pakistan cricket team Shoaib Akhtar said that he believes team India is on the right path to repeat the heroics of 2011 as they are strong contenders for lifting the ODI World Cup 2023 trophy. The comment of Akhtar came after Pakistan were defeated by India by 7 wickets in their world cup match on Saturday in Ahmedabad while putting to bat first. Pakistan were bundled out for only 191 runs.
Akhtar praised Rohit for his magnificent batting performance and stated that the Indian skipper played "ruthlessly."
On his YouTube channel, Akhtar said, "I am beginning to believe India is about to repeat that history of the 2011 World Cup. If they don't mess up in the semi-finals, India is really there to win this World Cup. So well done, India. You have done wonderfully well. You destroyed us, demoralized us, and decimated us. Disappointing performance, a very disappointing performance. Today, India completely hammered Pakistan."
He further said, "Rohit Sharma was a one-man army. I don't know where Rohit Sharma was in the last couple of years. He is a very big player and has a wide range of shots. He is a complete batter, a complete team; Pakistan's humiliation is in front of us. India ne Bachon ki tarah maara. I couldn't watch it. Rohit Sharma played ruthlessly.”
