Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed said his side’s had to raise their fielding standards ahead of a crucial World Cup match against arch-rivals India at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Pakistan once again produced some sloppy out-cricket in a 41-run group stage defeat by champions Australia at Taunton on Wednesday, dropping three catches amid other misfields.
Earlier, after put into bat, Australia made a commanding start as both Finch and David Warner added 146 runs for the opening wicket. Warner went to score his first 100 of the ongoing tournament. However, once Warner got out, Australia lost wickets in a heap and was eventually bundled out for 307 in 49 overs.
Meanwhile, Sarfaraz expressed disappointment and said his top four batsmen need to score runs if they want to win. He also said that Pakistan bowlers came back well after disappointing opening spells allowed Australia to have a flying start.
