"Pakistanis shouldn't get depressed over today's loss to India. If performance is accurately analysed, the defeat can be a blessing in disguise," he wrote on Twitter.

Imran further said on the site: "I saw some good talent on display today but there is a need for a better strategy. The cricketer-turned-politician also expressed confidence in the bowling attack which failed to prevent India from putting up a big total (300/7) in Adelaide.

"(Mohammad) Irfan, Wahab (Riaz), Yasir (Shah) and Sohail (Khan) can defend if batsmen give a decent target. But Younis (Khan) is a must for future matches," Imran wrote.
