After few one-sided games, the charm of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament is getting swelled as the top teams are flexing muscles against each other. Fixture between defending champions Australia and strong favorites India served as another exciting affair where two top world class teams engaged in a gripping contest which saw India winning the game by 36 runs to remain unbeaten in the ongoing cricket gala.
The game between two heavyweights witnessed many seesaw moments which thrilled all the cricket enthusiasts including former Pakistan wicket-keeper batsman Rashid Latif. The Karachi born while reflecting on the ongoing 10-team competition went on to call the match between India and Australia as a ‘final before final’.
Applauding the quality and consistency of the two teams, the 50-year old believes that the two units will be competing against each other on July 14 at Lord’s for the glorious World Cup title. Moreover, the cricketer turned expert has refused to write Pakistan off but feels that they lack the quality to topple top teams consistently. It remains to be seen how his prophecy fares as the tournament progresses.
