Haven't seen the interview but my brother who went to the Oval said the same thing that it was like watching a team of professionals (England) play a bunch of amateurs (Pakistan)...not surprised when you have a team full of over the hill and unfit players.

But at the same time they are the most unpredictable team in the world too and as Ramiz Raja once said its too hard to catch them in their upward curve. So hopefully these 'amateur' guys seal the big deal at T20 WC 2024 for us.
 
PCB wasted my on foreign coaches if they selected bunch of parchis or expired players
 
We are in an age where Pakistani cricketers are idolized.

It's probably down to social media.

The fact however is that most of them are very mediocre cricketers, but too many fans don't want to hear any criticism of them.
 
Pakistan played to the best of their abilities. This was the maximum they could do against the mighty England. We can't say that both teams are equally skilled.
 
Amateur is still a good word, I will say that This current Pakistan team is even worse than a minnow. They are bot paid vacations for a long time no and they don't care about Pakistan anymore.

England was always a better team so no wonders we lost against them 2-0 only because rain washed out 2 games else it would have been 4-0.
