CricketI don't know why they are playing 3 ODI's: Pakistan legend questions IND vs AUS series ahead of World Cup

Srinagar: Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram has questioned the India vs Australia three match ODI series ahead of World Cup 2023 in India.

India on Sunday lifts 8th Asia Cup title by defeating Sri Lanka by 10 wickets.

Wasim Akram speaking on Star Sports after India’s Asia Cup victory sais that the upcoming series against Australia is unnecessary. 

 Given the limited time for rest between the Australia ODIs and the World Cup, Akram believes it may not be in the best interest of Indian players to engage in this bilateral series.

“There are different venues and travelling in India… it takes a day (between every match). You need to preserve energy before the World Cup. I don’t know why they are playing three ODIs. It is probably done a long time ago, but it was a bit unnecessary. You don’t want to be tired before a mega-tournament where you are favorites at home. If you want some more players in the squad, you can play those in the three ODIs against Australia,” Akram said on Star Sports.

The three-match ODI series is set to take place from September 22 to 27, with matches scheduled for Mohali, Indore, and Rajkot.
