Pakistan’s most successful Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq reckons that India and England are the major contenders for lifting the World Cup trophy come July 14, and all the other teams then follow their suit.
Interestingly, the former batsman has left out a resurgent Pakistan side from his two favorites for the tournament, especially when Sarfaraz Ahmed’s men have already beaten the no.1 ranked England.
“India and England are the top two teams on paper because of their performances. Then the rest of the teams come,” Misbah told a private news channel.
Misbah also added the unpredictable nature of the sport does not allow one to predict the clear cut favorites and that any team can win on its day and cause an upset.
