India’s former skipper, Saurav Ganguly has named Pakistan as one of the favourites to win the World Cup 2019 on the basis of their past performances in England.
Pakistan won the Champions Trophy 2017 and World T20 2009 in England, while they have also performed well in the Test series they played in the country.
“Pakistan’s record in England is remarkable. They won the Champions trophy two years ago and also won the 2009 WT20 in England.”
Moreover, the man who is also known as the Prince of Bengal, had all praise for Pakistan’s performance during the second ODI against England, where they fell just short of the target of 374 runs.
“Pakistan always play well in England. You see the last game in England. England got 374 and Pakistan just lost by 12 runs. They also beat England in England in Test matches there because of their bowling line-up,” he said.
