During a chat with Sportskeeda, former Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram said that it is a blessing for the Indian team that no player has been a member of the Indian team that participated in the World Cup and reached the final of IPL 2024.

“Well, now at least none of them will have to say they are tired. They were thinking about the future, what’s the point of reaching the final? India is more important, we will play that country. But it could be a blessing in disguise of India,” he said.

Akram also pointed out that during a programme, some Pakistan experts discussed that due to IPL 2024, some Indian players might be tired during their clash with Pakistan in the league.

“We talked on the previous show that I was worried that they might be tired, and they certainly will be. Even the United States is not their path. I think Pakistan’s first game is Dallas, if I remember correctly,” he said.

Now they will go to play there, one or two practice games. Everything will be fine, I support him.bear It’s T20, the boys will recover, nowadays the level of fitness is very high,” he added.
