NEW DELHI: Former Indian cricketer and cricket commentator Aakash Chopra has commented that the reported remarks by Pakistan head coach Gary Kirsten after the team’s 2024 T20 World Cup exit has worked as ‘ghee on fire’ on the prevailing controversies.
Kirsten, who was recently appointed limited-overs head coach, purportedly criticized the team’s lack of unity following their poor performance.

“Allegedly Gary Kirsten has said the Pakistan team is not a team at all, that they are looking to pull each others’ legs, there are groups created and everyone is divided, they play together but don’t do anything like playing together, the five fingers don’t combine to make a fist. It’s been said that he said that in the dressing room and that thing has come out,” Chopra said in a video shared on his YouTube channel.

Pakistan’s T20 World Cup campaign ended in the group stage with losses to co-hosts USA and India in Group A. Several former cricketers have voiced that the Pakistan team appeared fragmented.
Despite Kirsten denying giving those remarks, Chopra added that in Pakistan cricket anything can be leaked especially after a bad campaign.

“Gary Kirsten has probably said that he didn’t say anything like that but Pakistan cricket is like a strainer. Whatever you put, it leaks from the other end. Since it’s about Pakistan cricket and a bad campaign, you are reminded of one thing – success has many fathers and failure is an orphan. It worked like ghee on fire,” the former India opener elaborated.
