In a stern rebuke, Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Mohsin Naqvi criticised the team's performance and identified the need for a 'major surgery' following their six-run defeat to India in the T20 World Cup. The Babar Azam-led squad struggled to reach a modest 120-run target, consuming 59 dot balls and finishing at 113 for 7 in New York on Sunday.

'I thought minor tweaks were needed, but now major changes are essential for us to win,' Naqvi remarked, as reported by Pakistani media in New York. He also underscored the importance of looking at players who have been sidelined for a while.

'Our performance against the USA was also disheartening. It's time to reconsider our current lineup,' he added. Naqvi, who assumed chairmanship and later became the interior minister, noted that the PCB had provided all necessary support to the players. Pakistan's advancement in the tournament now hinges on decisive victories against Canada and Ireland, and the outcomes of other matches.
