“I suppose, between the main teams, India appear favourites. They play fearless brand of T20 cricket. England are also at the top of the ladder. I think New Zealand too. And you never know about the West Indies. If their main players are in, they have a tendency to scare,” Akram said on ARY news.
When quizzed on the same interview of Pakistan’s chances, the former World Cup player stated that Pakistan have a few areas to work on before they can challenge the rest of the top teams. The Men in Green have won the 2009 T20 World Cup beating Sri Lanka in the final by eight wickets.
“Pakistan need to work on their team combination. Obviously, being a Pakistani, I would want Pakistan to win the World Cup. That will be a dream come true for all of us, especially the young captain, and if they improve their combination, find the best XI, they can fight. The problem of No. 5 and No. 6 needs to be solved,” Akram pointed out.
After successfully beating South Africa and Zimbabwe, Pakistan are set to travel to West Indies to play five T20Is in the month of July.
