The Pakistan great and former opening Batsman Ramiz Raja has requested the Pakistani Cricket Team to change their mindset and need to learn from arch-rivals India and the Indian Skipper Virat Kohli.
Ramiz Raja who had an illustrious career as a player was also part of the team which won the 50-over world cup in 1992 under Veteran and present Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The former praised the Indian captain and his fearless and aggressive mindset of approaching the games and gave a thumbs up to the the cricket board who have helped the Indian Cricket reach heights in International cricket in the last 15-20 years. “The sporting mindset has changed now. Now the teams are confrontational. Just look at Virat Kohli and co. They have completely revamped the Indian team with their aggression and fearless approach,” The former Opening Batsman said this on his YouTube Channel.
He also criticized the mindset of the Pakistani cricketers and said that the Pakistanis like to stay in a bubble and it bursts when they play in a multi-nation tournament against the big teams.
“Pakistan also have to adopt a mindset that matches their DNA. They need a think tank that lets them play modern day cricket. This difference becomes evident when Pakistan goes to World or Asia Cups or when in Test cricket they are pitted against a high-ranked side. There, the opposition plays attractive and entertaining cricket while it seems that we are still stuck in the 1970s,” he further added while reminiscing the golden days of Pakistani cricket under Imran Khan and Javed Miandad.
