Indian squad scared of fast South Africa attack – Aaqib Javed
India’s stick was very bad in the game against South Africa. The team’s top order was a complete flop. According to Aaqib Javed, the Indian team was afraid of South Africa’s fast attack. He said in a chat on Geo News,
The mistake Pakistan was making earlier, India also made the same mistake in this game. We were afraid to beat and kept the beaters until number eight. The Indian team also cut a bowler and fed the batsman.
