Two former Pakistan captains Wasim Akram and Inzamam-ul-Haq got into a fight before going down to play in the Asia Cup Super Four match against India. Akram was not at all happy with Pakistan opener Mohammad Rizwan’s batting against Hong Kong. He claimed that if you bat against India in this way, you cannot win the match. Inzamam could not agree with Akram’s words. He countered.
Rizwan scored 78 runs off 57 balls against Hong Kong. He was playing very slowly in the beginning. Speed up the run towards the end. In the end Pakistan scored 193 runs losing 2 wickets. Akram angry with Rizwan’s run rate. He said on the broadcasting channel, “There is no point in Rizwan playing this way. Even if he got out while hitting a few big shots, there was no problem. Next up was a lot of batter. Asif, Iftikhar, Nawaz, Shadab did not get a chance to play. 75 off 57 balls is meaningless in this format. There is no benefit for the party to survive in this way.”

Akram claims that playing against India in this way is harmful for the team. He said, “In T20 cricket, you have to hit from the first ball. Do not keep it in one direction. Hong Kong and India are not the same. Therefore, batting with such a conservative mindset will not do.
Inzamam is not happy with Akram’s comment. “Akram Bhai asked Rizwan to get out while hitting big shots,” the former captain told a Pakistani television channel. I do not agree with this statement. I think the first three batsmen should think about playing 12-13 overs. After that the rest have to run. You have to bat with a specific plan. But no batsman wants to get out while hitting a big shot. Everyone wants to make big runs. No one should be asked to come out like this.”
