Some Restrictions Have Been Put On Pakistan Team
As Pakistan suffered two horrible defeats in World Cup the management have put some new restrictions on Green Shirts including gap from media. Pakistan team has cancelled its training session on Monday which was replaced by individual meeting of the platers with team management. Pakistan suffered a 76-run-loss to India in their World Cup opener before being humbled by West Indies on Saturday. The team management headed by Waqar Younis has decided to take drastic steps in order to regain focus and get Pakistan's World Cup compaign back on track. It is a nice step to keep the team away from the glare of the media. To avoid further controversy it has been decided Pakistan now will be steering away from media. At the moment all outings and interaction with media have been put on holdhold for the next week to get players' focus on cricket. Pakistan takes Zimbabwe coached by Dav Whatmore on March 1, in Brisbane. The encounter will be a must win-game for the Green shirts but it seems players were desperate to perform. Meanwhile, Pakistan team's World Cup winning-captain Imran Khan said the team have to be regrouped and play attacking cricket if they have any hope in the tournament. Khan said," first and foremost thing is that if we are win our remaining matches and beat South Africa the top order has to get runs. We need to play attacking cricket by strengthening bowling and to take wickets. Containement will not work in this World Cup."
