The baffling video has been widely shared on various social media platforms, with numerous individuals attempting to shed light on who Iftikhar might have been conversing with. Regrettably, there is scant evidence available to resolve the intriguing mystery that has left the cricketing world intrigued.

After the match, Iftikhar Ahmed openly acknowledged the ineffectiveness of Pakistan's spinners in the ODI World Cup 2023 thus far. He explained, "We do have finger spinners in our team, including me and (Mohammad) Nawaz. Yes, the role of our spinners hasn't been that effective here. But we will keep trying to improve. That's all we can do."

He further added, "Frankly speaking, this was a wicket of 300-plus. But, their bowlers did trouble us. As a batting unit, we need to improve."

Fielding also emerged as a weak point for the Pakistan team during the tournament. Iftikhar admitted, "We made a lot of mistakes during our fielding, I admit. But, we need to improve; that's the only option we have for now. If you are playing against a world-class side, you have to perform at a similar level across departments. Only then you will be able to survive."

With their eyes set on the semi-finals, Pakistan now faces the challenge of winning their remaining matches and relying on favorable outcomes. Iftikhar expressed confidence in the team's abilities, asserting, "We can definitely bounce back. There's no doubt that we possess the abilities, and we have world-class players in our side." He concluded by emphasizing the urgency of winning all remaining matches to secure a spot in the top four.
