'The team needs to win'

While speaking to Pakistan Cricket, Abdul Razzaq said, "Look at the team's ranking in Test. In T20 they are luckily on number one. It is not that you are number one as a team.  You cannot say that because the team is really good that is why we are number one. The criteria is because other big teams have lost to other teams, that is why Pakistan has eventually become number one. There is a dire need to make the team better. Once the team gets better, automatically the players will also get better. If you just run behind individual records and individual players performances then the team won't play better. The team needs to win."
