Rashid Latif, former captain of Pakistan, voiced criticism against the Pakistan team following their consecutive defeats against England.

Pakistan didn't had a good outing in the last T20 game against England. England won the series 2-0 after two games got canceled because of rain.

After seeing Pakistan struggling former captain Rashid Latif points out the mistakes Pakistan committed on recent series.

"They are not getting their combination right, which is their biggest problem. Not only shuffle, but players need to be prepared to play at floating roles now in T20 cricket as per the match situation," former captain Rashid Latif said.

Pakistan appear to be in a state of confusion as the T20 World Cup approaches. Despite their efforts, there have been changes in their lineup, with Saim Ayub, who was expected to partner with Rizwan in the opening, being benched. 

In the final T20I match against England, it was Babar Azam, who took up the opening position. Rashid Latif wasn't solely addressing player rotation. 

He highlighted Pakistan players' struggle with adaptability. According to him, they couldn't adjust to floating roles, which he believes are crucial in shorter formats of the game.

Pakistan is feeling worried as their team is currently struggling. Earlier, they suffered a T20 loss to Ireland, which was disappointing considering Pakistan's usual standards, although they managed to bounce back with a win in the following games.

 Pakistan will face United States on June 6th which will be their first game in T20 World Cup. The much awaited India versus Pakistan game is on June 9th.
