Gary Kirsten Identifies Key Factors in Pakistan’s T20 World Cup Setback

Gary Kirsten, the coach for Pakistan’s white-ball cricket team, has submitted a detailed report to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Mohsin Naqvi, analyzing the team’s performance in the 2024 T20 World Cup proudly hosted by the USA and West Indies.

Sources indicate that the report, marked confidential, has been handed over to Naqvi for thorough evaluation.

The report delves into several critical aspects that contributed to Pakistan’s lackluster performance in the tournament, emphasizing issues such as player fitness, discipline, and game awareness.

The report said that Gary Kirsten has expressed serious concerns about the player’s fitness level.

Naqvi plans to review the findings comprehensively and will engage with PCB officials and former cricketers to gain further insights before deciding on the next steps.

Pakistan’s T20 World Cup journey was disappointing, marked by a surprising defeat to co-hosts USA and a significant loss to rivals India.

Although Pakistan managed to secure victories in their final two matches against Canada and Ireland, these wins were insufficient to progress to the next stage, leading to their early exit from the competition.
