Wasim Akram on World Cup: India will host the ODI World Cup this year. After about 12 years, the 50-over World Cup will be played on Indian soil. During this, Team India would like to end the drought of winning the ICC trophy for more than a decade. Meanwhile, former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram has given a statement regarding his team. He says that Pakistan can win the World Cup to be held in India. He also told the reason for this.

Pakistan strong contender with India
Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram said during a conversation with ‘Spots Tak’, India is one of the strong contenders to win the World Cup. But Pakistan cannot be underestimated. During this, when he was asked whether Pakistan is the favorite to win the World Cup? So he said, ‘Our team is fantastic. Our captain is a great player. We have the best pace bowling attack in the world.

Wasim Akram further said, ‘Shaheen Afridi is in excellent form at the moment. He has won the PSL title to his team for the second time in a row. He is emerging as an all-rounder. After this there are Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah. Mohammad Hasnain is there, Ehsanullah is an exciting young fast bowler. I think because the World Cup is happening in India, a team with a strong bowling attack will be successful. Because the pitches here are friendly to the batsmen.

All the World Cup matches will be played in India only.
All the matches of the World Cup to be held this year will be played in India only. Bangladesh and Sri Lanka hosted some matches during the 2011 World Cup. Before that, the 1987 World Cup was hosted by India and Pakistan. While India-Pakistan and Sri Lanka were the hosts in the 1996 World Cup. Pakistan reached the semi-finals of the 2011 World Cup.
