India vs Pakistan ICC Cricket World Cup: Pakistan’s one-time winning captain Imran Khan took to a social networking site to console the crestfallen Pakistanis after Sunday’s defeat to India in Adelaide.

Imran Khan, who admitted he had watched a cricket match properly for the first time in years, said that Pakistanis shouldn’t get depressed over the defeat.

“Pakistanis shouldn’t get depressed over today’s loss to India. If performance is accurately analysed, the defeat can be a blessing in disguise,” he wrote on Twitter.

Imran further said on the site: “I saw some good talent on display today but there is a need for a better strategy.

The cricketer-turned-politician also expressed confidence in the bowling attack which failed to prevent India from putting up a big total (300/7) in Adelaide.

“(Mohammad) Irfan, Wahab (Riaz), Yasir (Shah) and Sohail (Khan) can defend if batsmen give a decent target. But Younis (Khan) is a must for future matches,” Imran wrote.
