As a journalist, I have rewritten the article to make it unique. Here is the fresh version:
Pakistan’s cricket veterans have commended India’s exceptional performance in the World Cup, despite their defeat in the final against Australia. Wasim Akram acknowledged India’s current strong position in the sport and highlighted the effective programs and depth of talent that keep Indian cricket thriving. He pointed out that although India must have been shattered to lose the final, in cricket, these things happen. Recalling his experience as a captain when Pakistan played against India in the 1999 World Cup final, he mentioned that in the final, they were a different side.
Former Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq also echoed similar sentiments and praised Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli for their leadership skills. He said, “I think the younger players must have learned a lot from these two in the dressing room and otherwise in this World Cup.” He also pointed out that Australia had shown once again how mentally tough and organized they are in their sports and suggested that India just needs to continue their effective programs and depth of talent for future success.
Rashid Latif attributed India’s loss to psychological factors but praised Mohammed Shami for his outstanding performance throughout the tournament. He said, “You look at the way he has come up and done so well. He was my opinion, one of the standout players for India in this World Cup.”
