As a journalist, I would like to rewrite the above article in a unique way:
India’s cricket veterans have praised the Indian team for their outstanding performance in the World Cup, even after losing to Australia in the final. Wasim Akram highlighted India’s current position as a dominant force in world cricket. He emphasized that setbacks like the final loss are an inherent part of the game and commended India for their effective programs and depth of talent that keep them at the top.
Recalling his own experience as a captain during the 1999 World Cup match between Pakistan and India, Akram acknowledged that they were not on par with each other at that time. However, he also pointed out that India had improved significantly since then and was now a formidable opponent. Rashid Latif echoed these sentiments, stating that India’s capabilities were on par with Australia’s, but their defeat was due to psychological factors.
Latif also praised Mohammed Shami for his exceptional performance during the tournament, calling him standout player for India. Misbah-ul-Haq, on the other hand, commended Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli for their leadership skills. He believed that young players had learned from these two leaders and would continue to do so in future tournaments. Finally, he advised India to continue with their effective programs and depth of talent to maintain their position as a dominant force in international cricket.
