The Pakistani cricket squad has been complimented for their discipline both on and off the field by former Australian batsman Matthew Hayden. He credited their fervent dedication to Islam with inspiring much of this discipline. While providing commentary for a pre-ICC World Cup 2023 exhibition game between Pakistan and Australia in Hyderabad, Hayden made these remarks.
Former Australian batting champion Hayden noted that the Pakistani team’s dedication to Islam helps them maintain their discipline. He respects the team’s way of life because he believes it is consistent with the devotion, investment, and consistency he sees in the Pakistani team’s approach to cricket.
Pakistan lost their second straight game in the warm-up matches despite good performances from their captain Babar Azam and Iftikhar Ahmed in their quest to chase down 352 runs.
