Pakistan is set to engage in a must-win encounter against Sri Lanka in the Super 4 stage, aiming to secure their spot in the 2023 Asia Cup final.

Following India’s victory over Sri Lanka in their second Super 4 match of the Asia Cup, Pakistan’s hopes of reaching the tournament final received a significant boost. A win by Sri Lanka in that match would have severely jeopardized Pakistan’s chances. Now, to secure their place in the title-decider, Babar Azam’s team only needs to defeat Sri Lanka in their final Super 4 match.

Pakistan cricket legend Ramiz Raja had a direct message for the team ahead of this crucial clash: “Stay away from social media and television.”

In a video posted on his YouTube channel, Ramiz Raja acknowledged that India’s win over Sri Lanka has given Pakistan a glimmer of hope. He emphasized the importance of the team taking a mental break and advised them to use the reserve day wisely. Raja suggested that the players should relax by going to the swimming pool and avoid social media and TV, which could be filled with disappointment and negativity from the fans. He also stressed the need for skipper Babar Azam to foster unity within the team during this challenging period.

Ramiz Raja’s advice to the players was clear: focus on recovery, unity, and mental preparation as they gear up for the crucial showdown against Sri Lanka.
