T20 World Cup: It's a Morale-Boosting Match, Says Shoaib Akhtar As he Reveals Why it is Important For Pakistan to Beat India

In an exclusive interview with Zee News, Shoaib Akhtar said that it is important for Pakistan to beat India as it would set the tone for the team in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.


New Delhi: Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar feels that the upcoming match against India is just not a match for Pakistan but much more than that. With no teams willing to travel to Pakistan to play cricket, Akhtar said that their kids hardly get to see any cricket, adding the match against India on Sunday will be a morale booster for the entire nation.


The 46-year-old along with former India batter Mohammad Kaif on Thursday appeared on the Zee News show ahead of the much-anticipated match of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021.

"Our kids can't watch cricket. Then teams go away after coming. So the entire atmosphere gets very tense. So it is just not a match for us, it is a morale booster for Pakistan," revealed a visibly emotional Akhtar on the Zee News show #SabseBadaMauka.
