The Pakistan cricket team had a rather forgettable campaign at the Cricket World Cup 2023. With just four wins in nine matches, the Babar Azam-led Pakistan cricket team was knocked out of the knockout stage of the ODI Cricket World Cup 2023. Expectations were high from the 1992 Cricket World Cup champions and ranked among the best teams going into the 2023 edition. However, their on-field performance was not up to par and they lost to India, South Africa, Australia among others.
The criticism, after the World Cup debacle, is a harsh quote. From the questioning of Babar Azam’s captaincy of the Pakistan cricket team to the poor display of their spinners to the role of the Pakistan Cricket Board, none was left out.
Former Pakistan star Abdul Razzaq was among those who also criticized the team. One of his statements, while talking about changing the ‘neeyat’ or the intention of the team, he has been heavily criticized while naming the popular actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan while making a statement.

What a terrible thing to say!
That’s why education and grooming are important. These 3 have traveled the world and yet, Abdul Razzaq is saying something like this; endorsed by Umar Guoelán and Shahid Afridi. Very low.
This would hurt Aishwarya, her beautiful Bachchan family… pic.twitter.com/IPw3JWhhUd

Pakistan’s batting display, in their final round-robin stage match against England, revealed some raw emotions from former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja, who is also the skipper of the Pakistan cricket team.
“Even today’s batting performance is a specimen of 80s cricket. Pakistan cannot exist thinking they can beat good sides, who have advanced in attack, thinking and strategy, through cricket this kind of play. I hope the negative, Focus on fault lines. This team needs a mental lift. Because most of the nucleus will remain the same until the next World Cup. Shaheen Afridi and Babar are Azam is quite young,” said Ramiz Raja on Star Sports.
“The worst thing is the lack of bowling performance. The spin department looked completely different from what they produced. Their ability to play spin was also questionable. A sub-continent team playing spin so insipidly was new to me. . I never expected Pakistan to be so balanced against spinners. Afghanistan and India lost them. When they needed to be aggressive, Pakistan failed.”
