Pakistan lost to India by seven wickets in the ICC World Cup 2023 match in Ahmedabad on Saturday. This was their first defeat of this World Cup campaign after wins against Netherlands and Sri Lanka. Overall, it was Pakistan’s eighth loss against India in World Cups.

Pakistan went from being 155/2 to 191 all out in 42.5 overs in one of the most sudden batting collapses. The batting collapse came after Pakistan chased down a record total to win their previous match against Pakistan. The Men in Green lost their last 8 wickets for just 36 runs.

Would Not Look At My Phone For A Couple Of Days: Dinesh Karthik On Pakistan’s Loss

Dinesh Karthik spoke to Star Sports after Pakistan’s defeat and suggested how the Pakistani players can get over their defeat against India.

“It’s going to be hard to three days. I can promise you that they walk through airports like just what, Morgs said. There’ll be a lot of notifications coming in and most of it negative at this point of time. Ideally, if I was there, I wouldn’t look at the phone for a couple of days. That’s a start,” he said.

“Now, how do you deal with a loss like this? Because psychologically it is a bit of a blow. It’s one thing to compete and lose. Like when they lost against India in Melbourne in T20 a year ago, that is acceptable. They fought right to the end, India with a better team and they just picked them at the post. But today they didn’t compete. Now that is always hard to get over,” Karthik added further.

The former Indian cricketer said that Pakistan will need to play much better cricket in the remaining games after this tough defeat against India.

“They already have two wins and it is okay among the top ranked teams to lose one. What you don’t want to be doing is lose two on the bounce or get upset by one of the smaller teams. That will put a lot of people into your dreams, especially when it comes to the top four. They’re a good team. There is no doubt about it. They’re a team which has a good bowling attack. The are a team, which has a good batting unit as well. It’s about coming together, practising the right way and most importantly, believing in the same belief that they had at the start of the tournament and not change things midway,” he stated.

Pakistan’s next match is against Australia on October 20 in Bengaluru.
