Pakistan’s former Test captain, Misbah Ul Haq believes that the two-time world champions India and the hosts England are the two strongest teams on paper in this World Cup 2019.
India have won both of their games convincingly against South Africa and Australia. Whereas, the hosts won against South Africa and Bangladesh, while suffered a surprising defeat against Pakistan.
“All the experts are seeing India and England as the strongest sides apparently on paper,” said Misbah. “These are the top two teams, rest of the sides are behind them.”
The most successful Test captain of Pakistan feels that cricket is an uncertain game and favourite tags do not matter on the day.
“It is not possible that one team cannot lose or the other team cannot win, like England lost and it is not like India cannot lose, but on paper they are the strongest” he said.
India will face Pakistan in the most anticipated contest of the 2.5-month long World Cup on June 16th at Old Trafford.
