Pakistan’s highest Test run-scorer, Younis Khan said that Pakistan is capable of beating India in the upcoming Champions Trophy match on June 4.
“Pakistani side has the ability to beat India in Champions Trophy as Pakistan has outperformed India in the past as well,” he said.
Younis Khan has predicted that scoring and chasing 400 runs in the multi-nation cricket event will not be a big deal due to such batting friendly pitches.
“Pitches look good and in my opinion, even 400 runs will be easily chased down in the Champions Trophy,” he further stated.
In the past, Pakistan have suffered heavily due to their poor fielding. Khan urged the Men in Green to focus on their fielding as it has become an integral part of modern day cricket.
“In modern cricket, fielding is the key for winning ODIs and T20 Cricket and Pakistan team must focus on fielding and grab every opportunity,” he added.
He coined the Champions Trophy as a great opportunity for the new ODI captain, Sarfraz Ahmed to take cricket forward in the country.
“It’s a great chance for Sarfaraz Ahmed to lead the side well and take Pakistan cricket forward and all will depend on him that how he leads the side,” he said.
Pakistan will take on the arch-rivals India on June 4 in their opening game of Champions Trophy.
