Former Pakistani wicket-keeper and captain, Moin Khan has said in an interview that Pakistan got better bowlers for English condition and Pakistan can beat India in the upcoming World Cup for the first time.
“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,” Moin said on GTV News channel on Tuesday night.
“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 said.
“This should be a very interesting World Cup and I am backing Pakistan to beat India. Our boys are in good spirits and it is good they will go into the competition after having played ODI matches against South Africa, Australia and England,” he said.
“Pakistan has been one team which has done well in England in the last many years and in May-June the weather can be unpredictable and there is moisture in the pitches,” said Moin.
“I don’t know why all this fuss was made about the captaincy after the ban imposed on him for an incident blown out of proportion to my mind. I have seen Sarfaraz lead the team and I know since he was a junior and I have captained and coached him and I can tell you there is no better person to lead the Pakistan team than him now,” Moin said.
