We want to win World Cup for Peshawar schoolkids: Misbah

The Pakistan World Cup squad on Saturday interacted with the surviving children of the Army Public School carnage in Peshawar and also with their parents who were affected by the terrorist attacks on December 16. Soon after moving scenes were seen as the players shook hands with the injured children and embraced the parents, Pakistan captain, Misbah-ul-Haq said the courage of the children would serve as a motivating factor for the team to try to win the World Cup. “It was a great feeling. The kids gave us tremendous courage and wished the best for us in the coming World Cup. The best part is that these kids have rejoined the school and their spirit is an encouraging sign for the players, which is to never give up, whatever you do. And with this motivation, we will try to win the World Cup,” Misbah said. Shahid Afridi, Umar Akmal, Ahmed Shehzad, Muhammad Irfan, Ahsan Adil also accompanied their captain, who visited the Combined Military Services hospital where the children are under treatment and met with the parents at the corp commanders headquarters.
