“Pak cricket cannot be fixed if the Chairman of the PCB is not appointed on professional merit,” tweeted the cricketer-turned-politician on Sunday.

In a series of tweets, the cricketer stressed the need for revamping cricketing structure in the country to nurture talent.

The legislator who led Pakistan to victory in World Cup 1992 expressed his resentment for losing the battle against India without any apparent fight.

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.
