Currently Pak Champions have defeated Aus Champions and will likely beat WI Champions unless Chris Gayle goes Fireworks mode that is.

Regardless these oldies are proving why Pakistan was so successful during the 2007 to 2010 era of t20 cricket.

The openers Kamran Akmal, Sharjeel Khan and Sohaib Maqsood have shown how PP openers shpuld function. In the previous game, they helped Pak Champions score 70 runs in the first 6 overs.

In this game Pak Champions scored 75 of the first 6.

Similarly Malik, Misbah and Younis Khan are reminders as to how stable the middle order use to be and how each of these 3 would make use of the start provided back in the 2009 era.

Lastly Afridi is their to function as a proper no 7 finisher.

In regards to bowling, Malik, Afridi and Ajmal each took 2 wickets at given intervals, proving that the Pakistan of the past heavily relied on spinners making the Middle overs hell for the opposition.

The captaincy under YK has been great proving why he was and still is pakistan's best captain post 2000.

Flash forward to 2022-2024

We have 2 openers who can't utilise the Power play properly, the top to lower order is frankly non existent with it being filled with shadab, Chacha, Nawaz, Usman khan and other poor performers in recent times.

And the spin department is a joke, qith abrar not being played to protect shadab and chacha as spinners.

And the less said about the coward captaincy the better.

If Pakistan is to improve it's t20 campaign by 2026, then it is imperative we follow and emulate the same formula that Pak champions is formulating, which is the same formula pakistan incorporated in 2009.
 
Things that they can learn

1) Captaincy
2) United and gelled
3) How to utilise the PP
4) How to finish games
5) Deep batting
6) utilising spinners in MO.
7) No dosti yaari
8) Play people in their positions, Everyone is playing in their position that they rightfully shpuld be playing in.

Very well explained

I am sure these 50 years old babas can beat current lot of Pakistan cricket team
 
Fitness wise both are same.Nothing to learn.
Pak players should request the ICC to set up boundaries of the same size as those used in the championship tournament.
 
Foremost lesson - Pray that the proper Aussie team does field has-beens and discards like Christian, NCN, Laughlin, Dunk, Cutting etc l.

"You know things are bad when... Pak fans find solace in a win against an Ahs team in a joke tournament that 99% of cricketing world and fans don't care about.

This has nothing to do with what you're claiming or finding solace.

It's about team structure. The team structure of pak Champions is infinitely better then our current team, infact I'd wage this team to beat the current team, Their primes would wash the current team.

Analyse the factors as to why

Ok whatever floats your boat.

I am happy that you are having the time to deeply analyze what is a joke tournament and make some meaning out of it. For the rest of us it's a group of middle aged pot bellied greata and not so greats having a tonk and a laugh.

What does that have to do with team structure?

This.
Such a pathetic level we have reached, I mean seriously?!

He does not fit the stereotype you are assuming he belongs to. He is merely critical of the Pakistan team's approach in the T20 format and desires for them to learn from wherever possible.

Exactly, they should learn from every team, Afghanistan, Australia and these buddies babei.

The fact that minnows and oldies got their team structure down and pakistan itself doesn't is a major cause of concern.

How difficult is it to understand 8 basic rules?
 
They could learn a lot, especially something about fielding barring from Kamran Akmal. Abdur Razzaq and Wahab Riaz took some good catches today.
 
This champions team is fitter than the Babar XI. They can learn basic fitness, attitude, star power, how to look the part, heck even the uniforms look better than what we currently have.
 
India beware on Saturday

Big Boss Sharjeel coming for the trundlers!
The point is that it's better to give chances to Saim,Haris,Haider, Huraira, Saud,Farhan then go towards an old aging batsman who is playing legends league.

Do I care about giving chances? I care about ending bowling careers.
