When critiquing the Babar Azam-led team’s performance, the former Pakistani celebrity made a reference to “Aishwarya Rai.”
The Pakistani cricket team’s 2023 Cricket World Cup campaign was largely forgettable. The Pakistan cricket team under Babar Azam was eliminated from the round-robin stage of the ODI Cricket World Cup 2023 after winning just four of their nine games. The 1992 Cricket World Cup winners were considered as one of the best teams heading into the 2023 competition, therefore there were great expectations for them. They fell to teams like Australia, South Africa, and India, but their performance on the pitch was below par.After the World Cup fiasco, there has been, quote, strong criticism. None have escaped criticism, whether it be over Babar Azam’s leadership of the Pakistan cricket team, the subpar performance of its spinners, or the function of the Pakistan Cricket Board.
Abdul Razzaq, a former star for Pakistan, was one of the people who questioned the team. Aishwarya Rai, a well-known actor, was mentioned in one of his remarks regarding altering the team’s “neeyat,” or motivation, which drew harsh criticism.

Pakistan cannot continue to believe that they can play this kind of cricket and defeat superior teams that have developed their aggression, strategy, and thinking. All I can hope is that the negative, fault-lines get fixed. This squad requires mental stimulation. since the core will largely not change till the next World Cup. Babar Azam and Shaheen Afridi are both very young, according to Ramiz Raja on Star Sports.
“The worst thing is a poor performance when bowling. In comparison to other departments, the spin department appeared completely empty. Their spin game was also a question mark.I had never heard of a subcontinental team playing such trite spin. Pakistan’s lack of movement against spinners surprised me. They were battered by defeats in Afghanistan and India. Pakistan faltered whenever aggression was required.”
