ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament is well and truly underway with hosts England battling against South Africa in the opening game. Ahead of the glitzy mega-event, former cricketers sat down to give their predictions about the 10-team tournament.
Former Pakistan captain Waqar Younis isn’t far behind as he jumped on the bandwagon to share his verdict about the final four of the biggest cricket gala. The 47-year is of the opinion that England, Australia and India are in great position to make it to semi-finals.
Coming to the last spot, the cricketer turned commentator admitted that his heart wants Pakistan to qualify but he believes New Zealand is in better position to make the cut. While the Vehari born admits the quality of all the units but he feels that England is closest to winning the glitzy competition.
Reflecting on the running edition of the 50-over competition, Waqar added, “England are favorites, Australia are getting their confidence back and India are the most likely of the teams from the subcontinent. After that, my heart wants to say Pakistan, but New Zealand are most likely to complete the last four.”
