Pakistan Among the Favorites to Win World Cup 2019: Inzamam-ul-Haq

Inzamam-ul-Haq, Pakistan’s chief selector, has listed Pakistan ‘among the favorites’ to win the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup.

The tournament will commence from 30th May and Pakistan will face West Indies in their opening fixture on the following day.

Prior to the World Cup, Pakistan will tour England for a 5-ODI series and one-off T20I. This will help the players get used to the conditions ahead of the mega-event.

Pakistan’s most recent limited-overs assignment came in the UAE against Australia, in which they succumbed to a 5-0 defeat. A number of first-team players were given rest and debuts were handed to: Shan Masood, Abid Ali, Saad Ali, Mohammad Abbas and Mohammad Hasnain.

Despite the whitewash, Inzamam claimed that Pakistan pack the firepower to blow through each and every opposition in the upcoming mega tournament.

Against Australia, we had rested seven of our key players and in the last two games we had rested around 10 of our main players but the team still fought hard in those matches and that is a very good sign for me.

 

I am confident we will pick a very good team for the World Cup and Pakistan will be among the favorites for the title.

 

These players needed rest before the World Cup and we have a hectic schedule in England going into the tournament that is why we rested them and we also wanted to try out our bench strength.

Pakistan will face England on 5th May for a T20I in Cardiff.

  • Yeah He Is Right :

    1992 Wining By Pakistan
    2019WC Format Bhi 1992 Rakha Gaya

    Sarfu Hamara Hero CT17 Wala :
    May Be Possibilities hai K Hum Jeet Jaye :

  • Inzi plzzzzz be Realistic ….yu were a great player but not a good administrater ….Team not performed under yur supervision

  • By nature inzmam is jot a brave mover/risk initiator. My foremost question is why names of 23 players were announced in haste when a national level tournament is on ? Whether national performances are not important for selectors ? Domestic cricket is not a criteria for selection ? Only performance criteria is PSL ? Even for a ODI World cup ? When Micky Arthur personal liking and disliking is rule of thumb for inzmam, what is the future of young talent in Pakistan who are still striving hard to shine for the country ?
    Umar Akmal, Wahab Riaz and many others are trying hard to prove their worth in on going one day cup in Rawalpindi but a five wicket haul on batting wicket by Wahab Riaz or 100 plus average of Umar Akmal got some meaning for PCB Selection committee ? If Not, then stop domestic cricket and stop fooling young players and stop playing with their dreams. Keep organizing PSL and keep selecting even test teams on performance of PSL.
