A lot of former Pakistan cricketers doubted that India did not give their best against England, putting obstacles in their side’s road to semifinals.
“No, no, it is not right to say this. I don’t think India lost because of us. England played well to win,” Sarfaraz told reporters.
“Shoaib is our senior-most player and though he did not have a good World Cup, he has served the country a lot. His presence in the team was very good for all of us,” Sarfaraz said.
