Shoaib Akhtar criticize England after they…

Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar said that playing spin is not England’s cup of tea, as the Indian spinners destroyed the opposition and sent them out of the T20 World Cup in the semifinals.

India had already put up a big challenge by scoring a massive 171 for 7 on the board. On top of that left-armers Kuldeep Yadav(3 for 19) and Axar Patel(3 for 23) took the poision stings out of the England batting lineup by bowling them out for 103 after England themselves decided to bowl first.

“Indians can manage spin; Rohit Sharma can, he managed Adil (Rashid)…Inko aata hi nahi khelna spin (They don’t know how to play spin). This was not a pitch for the fast bowlers or there was uneven bounce. Itna humid hai, sookha jayega (It’s so humid, pitch will dry up). You make 150 and them try to put India under pressure. It can be match on, but they were adamant on batting second,” said Shoaib on his YouTube channel.

“India deserve to win (the T20 World Cup). I was disappointed last year when India lost the (ODI) World Cup Final. They should not have lost that because they deserved it.” said Shoaib.

India’s batting was yet again let by Rohit Sharma’s half century (57 off 39 balls). The skipper also added 73 critical runs for the third wicket with Suryakumar Yadav, who made 47 off 36 balls.

“Rohit is a big player, his career should end on a good note. Unfortunately, it slipped out of his hand last year. It would have been two World cups in his hand,” Shoaib added.
