The former Indian cricketer and the respected commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has said that Former Pakistan cricket team skipper Imran Khan is best captain that cricket World has seen and Sarfaraz is no match to him.
The Pakistan cricket team and its current skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed are at the receiving end of huge backlash following horrific ICC Cricket World Cup defeat to India.
“When we played Pak in the late 80s through the 90s they had strong leadership. The world hasn’t seen a better captain than Imran Khan. He was self-confident, he’d learnt cricket the hard way. Under Imran, Pakistan had a great team culture, a winning culture,” Sanjay Manjrekar was quoted as saying.
“Imran Khan inspired his team, almost brainwashed them into believing they were better than everyone. It helped that there was great, natural ability already there. All it needed was the right channeling and cricket sophistication and Imran took care of that,” he further was quoted as saying.
In the reports he was further quoted that the current skipper is no match to Imran Khan and the current Team India squad is far better than Pakistan.
“Sarfaraz Ahmed is no Imran Khan, he is not going to take Pakistan to the next level, and to be fair blaming him for the loss at Old Trafford is silly. India was a much stronger side and there was not much Sarfaraz could do about it,” he added.
