Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed warned his side to improve their fielding standards ahead of the marquee ICC World Cup 2019 clash against India at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Pakistan once again produced some sloppy fielding in a 41-run group stage defeat by champions Australia at Taunton on Wednesday, dropping three catches amid other misfields.

“We need to improve because if we want to beat bigger teams like Australia and India then all three aspects of the game are crucial,” said Sarfraz.

“Definitely I think the fielding needs improvement — the fielding is not up to the mark. We work together again, and work hard before the India match.”
