Karachi, Mar.10 (ANI): Pakistan all-rounder Yasir Arafat believes that his side can beat any team in the world even with average batting performance as they head into their World T20 campaign beginning on March 16 in Kolkata. Pakistan displayed a disappointing batting display in the recently-concluded Asia Cup T20, where they suffered humiliating defeats at the hands of host Bangladesh and India. Arafat is, however, adamant that Pakistan’s chances of clinching the title cannot be written off,PakPassion.net reported. The 33-year-old said his side has a good bowling attack at the moment, adding that they could do the job for the country even if the batsmen fail to deliver. READ: ICC T20 World Cup 2016: India-Pakistan relation shows cricket is not the winner after all

Arafat, however, admitted that if Pakistan continued to display the same brand of cricket as they had been performing recently then the result would be even worse in the World T20 . Arafat stressed that his side would face a tough pool in the T20 pinnacle event, and, therefore, called on his side to stay at their absolute best during the tournament. READ: Asia Cup 2016: Pakistan must not over-burden Mohammad Aamer with expectations

Earlier, This was a massive let down and disappointment for me as I have been playing this format of cricket for the last ten years or so with many teams; I have literally played in all the top leagues around the globe. I also happen to be one of the highest wicket-takers in the Tweny20 format. What hurts most is that amongst the ninety or so players picked by different franchises, I do not have a place in any team in a tournament which is being played in my home country.

I find that incredible to say the least and I cannot imagine anything more shocking for a player like myself. I could almost understand this if I was an inexperienced domestic player making my way into cricket but here I am, a Twenty20 specialist with a proven record and performances to match, yet I cannot find a place in this league.
