Pakistan suffered a shambolic seven-wicket defeat against India in the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023 on Saturday, October 14, in Ahmedabad. Babar Azam's men have received widespread criticism from fans as well as experts including former Pakistan skippers alike, as this is their second loss against their neighbours in two months.

While discussing and dissecting the most recent loss to India, former Pakistan wicketkeeper Moin Khan brought up an interesting point. The 52-year-old felt that there could be a communication gap in the setup owing to a language barrier between the Pakistani players and the support staff.

The Pakistan team has the South African trio of Mickey Arthur, Andrew Puttick, and Morne Morkel as team director, batting coach, and bowling coach, respectively. Grant Bradburn, who is a New Zealander, is the head coach of the former world champions.

"Most of the coaching staff has English-speaking people and that is why I feel there is a communication gap. I think there is a huge communication gap between the players, the coaching staff, and the trainers. Fitness levels also have a role in the performances of the team going down," Moin said while speaking to A Sports.

Stern Australia test awaits Pakistan in the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023

After two consecutive wins in the tournament against the Netherlands and Sri Lanka, Pakistan hit a roadblock against India. Babar Azam will have to inspire his troops to come back from the drubbing and look to get some confidence going as the challenge ahead doesn't get any easier. The Asian giants will take on Australia in Bengaluru in their upcoming fixture in the ODI World Cup 2023, on Friday, October 20.

Australia, who are the most successful side in the 50-over format's World Cup history, have had a dismal start to their campaign, losing their first two games against India and South Africa. They are playing Sri Lanka on Monday and will look to get back to winning way ahead of the clash against Pakistan. The Pakistan versus Australia clash would be keenly contested as no team would want to fall too far behind in the race for the semi-finals.
