Pakistan isn’t going into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament with an ideal set of preparations. As if losing badly against Australia and England wasn’t enough, the green team fell short against Afghanistan in the warm-up game. Moreover, the match against Bangladesh was washed out.
One of the major bowling positives proved to be the recalled pacer Wahab Riaz who delivered a fantastic exhibition of reverse swing in death overs against Afghanistan. The exuberant quick believes that Pakistan has enough gas in tank to overcome the recent horrors and record a strong campaign in the forthcoming cricket gala.
Furthermore, the 33-year old cricketer believes that Pakistan’s triumphs in 2009 (ICC World Twenty20) and 2017 (ICC Champions Trophy) in England would motivate the unit to do well in the 10-team tournament. Wahab also went on to highlight the reception they get in England as a major chunk of Pakistanis residing in England turns out to back the green team. Pakistan’s World Cup campaign will commence with a game against West Indies on May 31 at Nottingham.
