New Delhi: Praising Misbah-ul-Haq and Younus Khan for playing the role of senior players to perfection in the match against Sri Lanka, fast bowling great Wasim Akram said the Pakistan team need to rally around the experienced duo if they are to do well further in the World Cup.
Younis and Misbah struck half-centuries to help Pakistan beat Sri Lanka by 11 runs in their second group match on Saturday.
"It really heartens me to see the senior boys doing their jobs. Younus is an intelligent man and so is Misbah. Both have played a lot of ODIs and if Pakistan have to roll on, then this pair has to hold the innings together, every day.
