Team India will lock horns against arch-rivals Pakistan in the ongoing world cup on June 16th. The two teams last played in Super four stage of Asia cup 2018, where the men in blue emerged victorious. However, after the Pulwama terror attack in February 2019, there has been a huge demand of boycotting the world cup game against Pakistan.
Pakistan has never won a world cup game against India and the latter team stands with an advantage of 6-0 in the show piece event. Pakistani skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed didn’t disclose much details about India-Pakistan clash but maintained that the team will try its best in the much hyped clash between the two fierce rivals.
Michael Vaughan predicts the winner
The former England skipper has come up with predictions for almost every world cup clash for which he has been cursed and trolled by the fans online. While the English soil gears up for the mother of all clashes, Vaughan was quick to predict that it will be an easy victory for Pakistan over India in Manchester.
Meanwhile, former India opener Virender Sehwag has said that India will be the clear favourites in the game against Pakistan and the men in green does not stand any chance infront of the Virat Kohli led team.
“See i don’t think that Pakistan can beat India on 16th of June from any angle,” Sehwag said while interacting on official Youtube channel of Shoaib Akhtar.
“We have never lost to Pakistan in the world cup. I don’t know what happens to Pakistan when they take on us in the world cup, which extra pressure is exerted on them,” he added.
In response, former Pakistani pacer Shoaib Akhtar said that the trio of Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir and Hasan Ali will be lethal for India and the men in green will finally emerge victorious against men in blue in world cup history.
