Akram slams Pakistan’s archaic mentality in ODIs against England

Karachi[pakistan}, Aug.28 : Criticising Pakistan's attitude in the ongoing ODI series against England, legendary fast bowler Wasim Akram has said that the current national team are playing matches like they used to play way back in the 1990s.

Akram's comments came after Pakistan suffered a second successive defeat against Eoin Morgan's side, losing by four wickets at Lord's on Saturday.

Pakistan lost both the opening two matches of the five-match ODI series after posting a target of 260 and 251 respectively.

While admitting that Pakistan's psyche is not according to the modern cricket, Akram called on the side to realise that a score of 260-270 was not just good enough these days, the Express Tribune reported.

Earlier, head coach Mickey Arthur had also voiced his concerns over Pakistan's poor display in one-day cricket, saying that nobody in the squad is safe and that everyone need to prove himself.

Pakistan, who are currently trailing 0-2 in the series, will have to win the next match to keep the series alive.
