Sorry PM: Pakistan's World Cup losing run vs India hits 7
Prime Minister's advice
The PM had a few ideas on how Pakistan might end its run of six World Cup losses to archrival India, so he sent a few thoughts via social media for the team.
The main advice from the 1992 World Cup-winning captain ahead of Sunday's game: bat first if you win the toss; pick specialist batters and specialist bowlers.
Pakistan dropped a specialist batsman and a specialist bowler and recalled two all-rounders. The aim was to add depth to the spin attack on a wicket that takes turn.
Pakistan has so far had matches in this tournament against all the other previous champions, losing to West Indies, Australia and India and having to share the points in a washout against Sri Lanka.
The one win to date was against top-ranked England, the pre-tournament favorite. The next game is South Africa, which also has three points. Lose that and there's no chance they can reach the semifinals.
