Now the new member of the squad is Mohammad Hafeez. Mohammad Hafeez has recently shared his thoughts about that game. He said, “I don’t blame someone else for our failure. We shouldn’t think that we bowed out of tournament because of one single match. However if you show that Cricket match to any cricket fan even 100 times, the fan will take only one result from that game- the intent to play with that spirit wasn’t there. As a fan I found it painful as I didn’t see both the teams playing for win”

Ind Vs Eng held a lot of importance for Pakistan. India winning the match against England meant the chances of Pakistan qualifying to the semi finals were more. Pakistan showed a very poor performance in the initial phase of the tournament, but when it started to peak it was already late.
