Imad Wasim takes responsibility for Pakistan's failed run chase against India in New York

Pakistani cricket Imad Wasim has taken responsibility for the failed run chase against India last Sunday which eventually left the nation to backfoot in the ongoing T20 World Cup.

Pakistan have been eliminated from the tournament.

The former champions were left shocked when the USA beat the team, marking the first major upset in the 20 overs extravaganza.

“Our game plan [against India] was to take the chase deep. The wicket was tough to bat on. I let the team down because usually when I go in these situations, I stay very calm and finish the job,” Imad Wasim was quoted as saying by ARY News.

“Finishing this chase was my job which I couldn’t do, and I am very hurt by that. But this is life, sometimes you make mistakes. I believe my planning was right but the execution wasn’t good,” he said.

He blamed the Pakistan team's mindset for the defeat.

“In my opinion, the reason for our defeat [In the World Cup] was our mindset. We need to take the fear of failure out of our minds and try something new. It is all about mindset, other teams have also changed their thinking, we are behind them because we didn’t change our way of thinking,” he added.
