Not talking on the performance of any particular player in the world cup semi final clash against India, chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, Ijaz Butt said changes in the team will be made if needed.
Butt, who was going back to Pakistan through the Attari road route said, “I think the Indian team played better cricket and they won. Although the Pakistani team has also done well in this tournament to reach the semi finals, but they could have played better in the match against India.”
On reactions back home, Butt said, “People must take it as a game and should not react with anger. They should understand that the team tried its best, but India had a better day.”
Butt, who was hopeful of more cricket between India and Pakistan in future, said, “Even the Prime Ministers of both the nations had talked on this and we cricket boards also feel that both the nations must play regularly. We hope that bilateral series resumes soon and we see quality cricket.”
On a question regarding changes in Pakistani team and especially the way some players played in the semifinals, Butt said, “I won’t debate on the performance of any particular player. But changes will be made if there is need.”
