In a meeting with the T20 World Cup squad at the Prime Minister House yesterday, the prime minister told the team to perform well in the upcoming international cricket event.

He said that the entire nation has its eyes on the team for the T20 World Cup.

Encouraging the team to give its best, the premier said that Pakistan does not lack talent and the entire world agrees.

“When you enter the ground, enter with self-confidence and the determination to win," he said.
