After finishing the Asia Cup 2022 group stage with a perfect win record, Team India has suffered two consecutive defeats in the Super Four stage after losing to Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar has reacted to India's defeats saying it is a 'wake-up call' for the team.

Team India lost their Super Fours opener against Pakistan by five wickets followed by a six wicket defeat by Sri Lanka on Tuesday.

While speaking on his YouTube channel, Shoaib Akhtar said,  "Rohit Sharma looks very uncomfortable; he is seen shouting on the field. India brought in Ashwin and dropped Bishnoi, which shows there is uncertainty in the camp. This is a really good wake-up call for India, coming before the World Cup."

"I do not think India played very poorly; they did not play well, that is a fact, but there is a rise after every fall, and this fall might help them in the World Cup.  India should not be disheartened, but they should learn from this. They should find their final playing XI. Rohit Sharma has to sharpen up his captaincy as well," Akhtar added.

Talking about Asia Cup 2022, Pakistan and Afghanistan are scheduled to face each other on Wednesday while India will play their final Super Fours game against Afghanistan on September 8 at the Dubai International Stadium.
