Waqar Younis: The World Cup 2023 is just around the corner and the anticipation and speculation are high. The tournament will kick off on October 5 in India, a country that lives and breathes cricket. Many experts and fans are sharing their views on who will make it to the final.
One of them is Waqar Younis, the former Pakistan fast bowler and captain. He recently spoke to Star Sports and revealed his prediction for the final. He picked England, the current champions, and India, the hosts, as the most likely contenders. He surprisingly left out Pakistan, his own country, from his forecast.
India has the advantage of playing at home, with familiar pitches and passionate crowds. They also have a strong team that has performed well in recent matches. They have a reputation for delivering under pressure and rising to the challenge.
Pakistan, on the other hand, is missing from Younis’s prediction. This is intriguing, as Pakistan has a rich history in world cricket, especially in the World Cup. They have been known for their unpredictability and ability to turn the tide in crucial moments. They have won the World Cup once and reached the final twice.
Some might say that Younis’s prediction is based on current form and team balance. But ignoring Pakistan, especially considering their fierce rivalry with India and past World Cup achievements, will spark some debate.
Whatever the result, the World Cup 2023 in India promises to be a thrilling and memorable event.
