Former Pakistan captain Moin Khan recently said that he thinks that the current Pakistan cricket team has the potential to beat India and break the World Cup jinx. If Pakistan does beat India at the World Cup, that would mean the first time that our neighbours got the better of us in cricket’s biggest event. India and Pakistan faced off at the world cup six times, but on all these occasions, Pakistan never managed to get the better of the Men in Blue.
“This present team is very capable of recording a first win over India in a World Cup because there is talent, there is depth and variety and Sarfaraz Ahmed has now gelled the squad well,” said Moin on GTV News. The former cricketer was a part of the Pakistan squad that featured in the 1992 and 1999 World Cups. He is now very confident that Pakistan can edge out the Virat Kohli led side.
Khan’s confidence emerged from the fact that Pakistan beat India in the Champions Trophy two years ago. He believes that the British conditions in June suit them well. He also thinks that England and India will be the team to beat this year. "I say this because our boys beat them (India) in the Champions Trophy two years back and I just feel that in English conditions in June we have better bowlers," he added.
