Pakistan team’s body language not positive: Wasim Akram

Former captain and legendary bowler Wasim Akram said Pakistan team’s body language has declined and the Green Shirts should have played more practice matches than one before the New Zealand series to get used to the conditions.
The left-arm great expressed his views in an interview after Pakistan’s humiliating defeat against the Kiwis in the third one-day international (ODI) which cost the series as well.
Akram said he went out for routine exercise during the innings break and was shocked to see six Pakistan wickets down when he came back after 50 minutes.
The ex-skipper admitted that the New Zealand tours have always been tough since his playing days, but the team should keep body language positive and fight to overcome the challenges.
He maintained that Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed should not promote himself up in the batting order as he is a regular batsman at number seven or eight. Sarfraz can only risk to bat up in the order if Pakistan are chasing a big target, Akram commented.
It is worth mentioning here that New Zealand had thrashed Pakistan by 183 runs in the third ODI in Dunedin and clinched the five-match series on Saturday with two games to spare.
