The repercussions of Pakistan's second consecutive defeat, following a resounding loss to co-hosts USA in their opening match, are felt in the words of former players who question the captain, selectors and the board on the decline of Pakistan cricket in recent times.

Ahmed Shehzad in a TV show whose video clip went viral on social media.
“The kind of progress that was happening, these things were on the agenda and were bound to happen one day.”

“There are players who have been taking care of the team for 4-5 years, who make all the decisions. So wasn't it their duty to take responsibility for making sure the team chases 120 to win such an important match against India?'” asked Shehzad.
The second highest scorer in Pakistan's run chase was Imad Wasim who made 15 runs but consumed 23 balls in the process.

“Aapne teams B, C and D ke khilaaf perform kar ke logon ko hallucinate kiya hai aur pagal banaya hai (you played against teams B, C, D and cheated people),” Shehzad accused the team. “Your salaries have been increased, PCB has paid you to develop yourself and your cricket…”
Shehzad also trained his guns on Babar, almost mocking the Pakistani captain by referring to the word 'king' and showing a piece of paper containing Babar's statistics in major tournaments.
“Your (Babar) scores in major competitions… your average is 27 and your strike rate is 112. And 1,400 of your runs ended in defeat, which places you third in the world in this list. So these statistics are of which king, tell me that? What should I do with this king who cannot win us the match?

The video ended with Shehzad accusing Babar of bias.
“You have misled the entire audience. Aap apne dosto ke saath team bana rahe hain, dosto ko team ke andar rakh rahe hain (you make a team with your friends, you keep your friends in the team),” Shehzad said.
