Pakistan can outperform India in T20 World Cup: Wahab
Pakistan national team pacer Wahab Raiz said that he is confident in his team and they can outperform their arch-rival Inda in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup.
Wahab believed that Pakistan can beat any team if it played with its full potential.
“They definitely have the ability to achieve that result. If Pakistan plays to its potential, then they can beat any team in the world including India. Twenty20 cricket is such a format that the whole match can turn in the space of a few balls or even one incident and the Pakistan versus India match will be no different. If Pakistan play at their best, they can certainly beat India,” Wahab said.
“Given the conditions and where it’s being held, I believe Pakistan has a very good chance of winning the tournament. Pakistan has played a lot of cricket in UAE, and this gives them a very good chance to win the competition. They’ll be familiar with the conditions, and they’ll know what the ball will do. If they can utilize the conditions and use them to their advantage, then there is no reason why they can’t be considered amongst the leading contenders for the title,” he added.
Wahab further added that being part of the team is not in his hands. It is the selectors who will decide who will be playing.
“If it was up to me, then yes you will. But it’s up to the selectors who they want included in the side and who they think will provide the maximum utility. As a player, all you can do is to perform and that’s what my aim is and that’s what I am doing around the world. Lately I’ve played in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), and I have showed what I am capable of, and I don’t think I have to prove it again and again. Regardless of what they feel, I am performing well wherever I am getting a chance to play. So, let’s see what the selectors have in mind and whether they want me to be a part of future squads is totally up to them,” he concluded.
ICC T20 World Cup is scheduled to start on October 17 with qualifying matches. Those teams who will qualify will then play in the Super12 scheduled to start on October 23
Pakistan will go against India in the T20 World Cup on October 24 in Super12 Group 2.
