We consider England to be the biggest contender for the World Cup to be held in England. Apart from England, India and Australia are also being told that they can win the World Cup. Although no one has ever said that Pakistan can reach the finals, but former Pakistan captain and all-rounder Shahid Afridi has surprised everyone with his statement.
Afridi said that bowling is always the biggest strength of Pakistan cricket team and in the World Cup team, Aamir and Wahab Riaz has strengthened the team’s bowling. They later included both of these players in the Pakistan World Cup team. Afridi said that before the World Cup, the team was struggling with gamble because they lacked experience.
But now things are different and because of Riaz, Aamir and Shahid Khan, bowling attacks have become very strong in the team. Now Pakistan’s team looks completely balanced.
Afridi told that the combination of the team is now accurate. Although the form of the team’s batsmen was a matter of concern before the World Cup, the team’s batsmen have come in the form of the ODI series against England. It is very important for you to have a good start in an important tournament like the World Cup. We have to win in the first few matches to achieve the rhythm of victory. Our young team can fully defeat anyone.
Afridi said he saw Pakistan in the semifinals. He said that Pakistan’s team will play this semifinal this time and I am also confident they will play in the final also. The pressure in this tournament is natural, and it is the right examination of the mental condition of the players. This is the opportunity for world cup players in which they can become a hero and the eyes of the entire world are on their side. Let us know that just before the World Cup, Pakistan’s team got a 4-0 defeat in the one-day series against England. After this series, we made some changes in the Pakistan team. However, in this one-day series, Pakistan’s batters had done very well.
