Former Pakistan cricketer feel Pakistan will be favourites against India WC 2019. Find why?


XtraTime Web Desk: Former Pakistan skipper Moin Khan belives that this Pakistan side can break its World Cup jinx against India. Mean while, Men in Blue remain unbeaten in the ICC World Cup against Pakistan.
The arch-rivals will meet again in the World Cup at Old Trafford on June 16.
“This present team is very capable of recording a first win over India in a World Cup because there is talent, there is depth and variety and Sarfaraz Ahmed has now gelled the squad well,” Moin said.
But Moin, who featured in many famous matches against India and was a member of the 1992 and 1999 World Cup teams, said this time he is confident of Pakistan win.
“I say this because our boys beat them (India) in the Champions Trophy two years back and I just feel that in English conditions in June we have better bowlers,” he said.
Moin feels India and England would be the teams to beat in the World Cup.
“This should be a very interesting World Cup and I am backing Pakistan to beat India. Our boys are in good spirits and it is good they will go into the competition after having played ODI matches against South Africa, Australia and England,” he said.
He also supported the move to have three-weeks’ training camp in England before the World Cup, saying this would help the players in acclimatising comfortably to the English conditions.
“Pakistan is one team that has done well in England in the last many years and in May-June, the weather can be unpredictable and there is moisture in the pitches,” said Moin.
The former Pakistan manager and chief selector also supported the return of Sarfraz Ahmed as captain for the World Cup.
“I don’t know why all this fuss was made about the captaincy after the ban imposed on him for an incident was blown out of proportion to my mind. I have seen Sarfraz lead the team and I know (him) since he was a junior. I have captained and coached him, and I can tell you there is no better person to lead the Pakistan team than him now,” Moin said.
