Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez believes alongside Pakistan, India and England are the top three favourite teams to win the upcoming ICC ODI World Cup.
“Even from a critical point of view, I think we are among the top three favourites for the World Cup. England is always favourites given the brand of cricket they are playing while India has developed a very good ODI side and have some great spinners in their line-up,” Hafeez said.
Despite losing three consecutive ODI series to New Zealand, South Africa and Australia, the Professor believes that Pakistan team as a unit will go to perform in the mega event as the players within the group always encourage and support each other.
He also attributed Pakistan’s World T20 title win in 2009 and the Champions Trophy title in 2017 in England to the massive support they got in the United Kingdom.
