LONDON: Indian cricketers Mohammad Kaif and Aakash Chopra were all praise for the Pakistan team’s Twenty20 tri-series win against Australia in Zimbabwe.
They took to social media to congratulate the team and left-handed batsman Fakhar Zaman on the victory.
“Well done to Pakistan on winning the T20 series final against Australia,” Kaif tweeted. “Great innings from Fakhar Zaman, looks a big match player.”
Fantastic win from India. The bowlers were outstanding to restrict England below 200 on that surface and @ImRo45 makes it look so easy. 3rd T20I 💯 and as effortless as ever. 6th successive T20 series win from this special side #IndvsEng
