The Pakistan cricket team would have a great challenge at hand in the coming months as it would be playing against England before featuring in the all-important World Cup on the same soil.
Former Pakistan ODI skipper Azhar Ali believes that the current young lot of players could actually help the side lift the World Cup trophy as they have the ability to challenge the best in the business.
“It is my belief that Pakistan has a better chance to win the World Cup this time around. In Champions Trophy, nobody would have thought Pakistan winning the title but now people are mentioning Pakistan as potential winners of the World Cup,” he said.
Azhar has also highlighted the fact that the batting would need to step up and support the bowlers in the mega event as it is the former that mostly lets the team down.
