Read their conversation below:

Mayanti Langer: "They lost a lot of wickets, so you are not (reaching the death overs) with wickets in hand. Are you gonna continue with this to the World Cup?"

Wasim Akram: "All yours Sanjay!"

Mayanti Langer: "No Wasim, I wanna hear what you wanna say."

Wasim Akram: "Rohit Sharma is probably sick watching himself on TV. Two other teams are playing. I discussed India yesterday all day long. Today is Pakistan vs Afghanistan. That's why I am saying, Sanjay all yours."

The game was indeed important from India’s point of view as Afghanistan's victory would have kept their outside chances of qualifying for the finals alive. Afghanistan and India have been knocked out of the competition and Pakistan will meet Sri Lanka in the grand final on Sunday, September 11.
