This is not the first time the team arrived in an Indian city and enjoyed the local and authentic delicacies. Back in Hyderabad, the entire team headed to the popular Jewel of Nizam and gorged on loads of finger-licking dishes such as biryani, kebabs, Hyderabadi haleem, gosht salan, and more. The team is receiving a lot of flak for their performances from fans and cricketers from all around the world. Recently, Wasim Akram talked about the team’s fitness, performances, and their food habits. He criticised the fitness conditions of the cricketers playing in the Pakistan team.

Today’s match between Bangladesh and Pakistan is an extremely crucial one for the Pakistan team, in fact, a do-or-die one. Their past performances in the ongoing tournament have not been well enough to place them at the top ranks of the table. Currently, the team is standing at the 7th rank with only 2 wins out of 6 matches. On the other hand, Bangladesh is in the 9th position, the second last on the points table. The team managed to win only 1 match after playing a total of 6 matches.
