In the last press conference in Pakistan before the World Cup, Sarfraz Ahmed and Mickey Arthur talked to media and reassured that they have picked a multi-dimensional squad.
Talking about chances of lifting the World Cup trophy, Sarfraz said:
Look, when we go as favourites, then it is a problem, but if we go as underdogs then other teams feel the danger, so I think being underdogs is good for us and eases the pressure.
It is worth mentioning that Pakistan named Muhammad Amir and Asif Ali as two additional players apart from the 15 member World Cup squad.
The final squad for the World Cup has to be announced before the deadline of 23rd May.
