Current players don't compare to their heroes: Moin Khan
LAHORE: Former wicket wielder from Pakistan Moin khan He feels that current players do not believe in idolizing or comparing themselves to their heroes who have played on previous sides.
People come and tell us that their generation had amazing players. My personal opinion is that we used to idolize the great players who preceded us, Moin told his former captain. Wasim akram in a video uploaded to the BSport Pakistan YouTube channel.
We try to reach their level and set the bar high for us. Today, players tend not to compare their performance with others. Maybe they are just playing on their own, that could be one of the reasons. Also, there are a lot of Cricket players these days due to T20 Cricket so consistency is a little difficult for players these days, Moin said.
Wasim said his goal when he first joined the team was to consistently take more wickets than the captain. Imran Khan .
When I broke into the team, my aim was to take more wickets than Imran Khan. When you come into the team your mindset must be to take more catches and effect more stumpings than your heroes, Akram said.
Moin said it was the same with Inzamam-ul-Haq , with whom I used to share rooms.
I used to idolize my heroes what they used to do. How many catches they had, how they used to play. How much hard work I will have to put in to beat their mark. Inzamam-ul-Haq, my roommate, was also the same. I've used to say 'he has scored these many runs and now I will have to score more', Moin said.
