KARACHI: Former Pakistan captain Younis Khan said on Saturday that the former cricketers who have been part of groupings in the team are now seen criticising the squad playing the World Cup tournament under the captaincy of Sarfaraz Ahmed.

Speaking in an interview with Yahya Hussaini in Geo News’ show Score, the former skipper said that Pakistan cricket would have been in a better shape today if the board had implemented strict policies towards players involved in match-fixing.

“Pakistan cricket is experiencing a dip since 1993-94,” Younis said.

The legendary batsman said the Pakistani team playing the tournament is as per par, however, same cannot be said about the team management and the selection committee.

“It’s the same team that defeated England at Trent Bridge under Sarfaraz,” he concluded.

Sarfaraz’s team will be playing their must-win World Cup game against South Africa on Sunday.
