Just before the highly awaited India-Pakistan game in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at the Old Trafford cricket ground in Manchester, former Pakistan skipper and current chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq believes that arch-rivals India has a good chance of winning the trophy, NDTV reports.
While conversing with ANI, the highest Pakistani ODI run-scorer said that the Indian cricket team is a balanced team with a strong batting line-up which is very good one-day international (ODI) team.
In another video reported by The Economic Times, Inzamam says the India-Pakistan game is like a ‘final before the final’, due to the sheer number of fans who have come all the way from their countries to sell out the stadium.
India-Pakistan games are one of the most awaited cricketing matches in the world of sports. In ICC Cricket World Cups, India has ousted its neighbours every time they have played each other. When about it, he felt optimistic about the current team to stop India from winning for the seventh consecutive head-to-head game in the world cup.
Currently, India sits on the fourth position with five points in three games. Pakistan is sitting on the other end at the ninth spot with three points in four games.
