In a series of tweets, the cricketer stressed the need for revamping cricketing structure in the country to nurture talent.
Unless Pak cricket structure is totally revamped/reformed, despite an abundance of talent the gap between Pak & India will keep increasing— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) June 4, 2017
And we will keep facing disappointment by defeats such as the one today. https://t.co/noxfc7srWN— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) June 4, 2017
The legislator who led Pakistan to victory in World Cup 1992 expressed his resentment for losing the battle against India without any apparent fight.
As a sportsman I know winning & losing are part of the game but it's painful to watch Pak being thrashed by India without putting up a fight— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) June 4, 2017
High Stakes Encounter
The power packed Indian team overpowered Green shirts on Sunday in their first encounter at Edgbaston by 124 runs.
India came out as the superior side, defeating Pakistan in a match marred by rain and sloppy fielding.
Pakistan after winning the toss invited its arch-rival to bat first after which it found no end to their aggression as they set a mammoth 320 runs target.
Visibly scared over the giant target, Pakistan started off and lost early wickets and subsequently registered another defeat aginst India after getting bowled out for a mere 164 runs in just 34 overs.
