Despite the defeat at the hands of the Caribbean side, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed chose to focus on the positives.

Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar shared his opinion after West Indies defeated Pakistan by seven wickets in their campaign opener of Cricket World Cup 2019.

On Wednesday, the captains of all the ten teams participating in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 met Queen Elizabeth and Prince Harry at the Buckingham Palace. He's the first captain I've seen who is so unfit. "He's not able to move across and he's struggling with wicket-keeping".

Writing "Speechless" himself, Akhtar then tweeted: "Ok the match is over". Recollecting my thoughts and emotions.

"Let's put it this way that Pakistan has played cowardly on Friday, they neither seem interested or united and I felt that Pakistan was not even present at the moment in Nottingham", said Akhtar.

Talks between the TMC and opposition and protest leaders in the Alliance for Freedom and Change movement have ground to a halt. For weeks, demonstrators have camped out in front of Khartoum's army headquarters to pressure the generals to yield power.

On the upcoming match against England at the same venue on June 3, he said England are a strong side but Pakistan team had performed well against them in the recently concluded series, adding we would come back in the tournament with a victory against England. "We didn't play well against the short ball". "Today was a bad day".

Sarfaraz Ahmed attended the Royal meet dressed in a white Shalwar Kameez with Pakistan team's green blazer to back it up. "It was good to see Mohammed Amir back in the form we know he is capable of and it will be good for us in the next matches as well.We have got to back ourselves and not think too much about what happened in this match", said Safaraz.

But it would not be entirely wrong to say that Sarfaraz has received more support than criticism for his dress code.

Pakistan next play England at Trent Bridge on Monday and they will have their task cut out as the Englishmen are looking confident and thrashed South Africa in their opening game.
