The Cup is Pakistan’s, if they beat Australia: Imran

IMRANLegendary Pakistan cricketer and world cup winning captain Imran Khan believes that there is no stopping Pakistan from winning the world cup provided they manage to beat Australia in the quarter-final stage.  Imran also believes that the Adelaide pitch will provide Pakistan the best opportunity to beat Australia, as the pitch provides great help to the spinners and is not fast like other pitches in Australia. Imran also advised Misbah to play Yasir Shah against Irealand, Imran believes that although Yasir couldn’t perform well against India because Indian batsmen are good against spin, the leggie can cause a lot of problems for Irealand.

Imran also had good things to say for pace bowler Muhammad Irfan, the former skipper declared Irfan as the most dangerous bowler at the world cup and advised Pakistan to use him as a wicket-taker. Imran also appreciated wicket keeper batsman Sarfraz for his brave batting style and said that the wicket-keeper batsman should have played in the earlier games too. He also advised Misbah to attack instead of trying to save runs.

“A defensive mindset looks to win games by saving runs, while an attacking mindset looks to win games by taking wickets”, said Imran.
