NEW DELHI: As India and Pakistan gear up for the high-octane T20 World Cup clash in New York, former speedster Shoaib Akhtar has urged his team to play out of their skin and not chase personal milestones.
India have a 6-1 record against Pakistan in T20 World Cups.
Akhtar said that the entire country is rooting for them and Babar Azam and Co. and they have got to step up as an entire unit against the rampant Indian side.
“Pakistan, play out of your skin.Play for Pakistan. Don’t play for individual records,” said Akhtar in a video posted on X.

And after Pakistan’s shock loss, the cricketing fraternity teared into the team, labelling the defeat as a ‘black day’.
Playing in their maiden T20 World Cup, newcomers USA prevailed in the Super Over to stun former champions Pakistan.
