Javed Miandad has warned teams that it won't be easy to stop the Sarfraz Ahmed-led side from lifting their second title if they can find some early form in this year's showpiece event in England and Wales.
The Men in Green has always been an unpredictable side in the mega-events as they can get the better of any team on their day, as they have surprised one and all by winning their only World title in 1992 and Champions Trophy despite entering into the ICC events as the lowest-ranked side.
“One thing about Pakistan that everyone should be wary of is that when they get going, it's difficult to stop this team from winning. No one gave us a chance to win the 1992 World Cup but we were victorious then, and the same happened at the Champions Trophy in 2017 as well. Once they get some momentum, Pakistan is a very difficult team to stop for any opponent,” Miandad said.
Miandad who amassed 7,381 runs in 233 ODIs, termed England, India, South Africa and Australia as favourites, but made it clear that the rankings and previous records will count for little once the tournament gets underway on May 30.
