Former Pakistani cricketer, Aaqib Javed, expressed confidence in the Pakistani cricket team's ability to perform in India during the World Cup 2023. In an interview with the media, Javed said that the Men in Green have historically played well against their rivals on Indian soil.
The former right-arm pacer emphasized the strength of Pakistan's bowling unit, stating that it is even stronger than New Zealand's. He believes that India's batting performance, which is typically strong at home, will struggle against the Green Shirts in the upcoming tournament.
Aaqib also highlighted the importance of key bowlers such as Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah, and Haris Rauf in the team's success. He noted that the presence of competent all-rounders like Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz will balance the side against India's strong all-rounders.
In addition, Javed advised the Pakistan Cricket Board to select a stable squad for both the 2023 Asia Cup and World Cup 2023. He emphasized the importance of consistency in the team's performance leading up to the tournament.
Overall, Javed exuded confidence in the Pakistan cricket team's ability to perform well in India during the World Cup 2023.
