Aaqib Javed, a former Pakistan cricketer, has made a bold declaration about the Babar Azam-led team, who is slated to visit India for the 2023 World Cup later this year, after Rohit Sharma and Co.’s recent ODI series victory over New Zealand. Javed, who competed for the Green Army in 163 ODIs and 22 Tests, has high hopes for Pakistan in the 2023 World Cup, which will be hosted by bitter rivals India.

The former cricketer said that Pakistan has always made life difficult for India in major competitions. Javed thinks Pakistan won’t have any problems playing on Indian fields in the 2023 World Cup. The veteran cricketer acknowledged India’s spectacular series victory against the Black Caps, likened New Zealand’s bowling assault to Pakistan, and explained how the Men in Blue were able to post enormous totals in three ODIs.

“India has traditionally had difficulty dealing with Pakistan. The Pakistani squad won’t have any issues using the local fields when it travels to India for the World Cup. Even though lately, during an ODI series, India scored a lot of runs against New Zealand. However, Pakistan’s bowling is not comparable to that of New Zealand, and as a result, the Indian batters scored 400 runs “GeoTv cited a statement made by Javed.

Before the World Cup, the Lahore Qalandars coach has pleaded with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to hold off on making any roster changes. At the 2023 World Cup, teams would have a difficult time exceeding 300 runs, according to Javed. “In ODI cricket, the Pakistan cricket team performs better because of its superiority in bowling. The squad will gain since Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Naseem Shah are all physically fit. Mohammad Nawaz and Shadab Khan are available to Pakistan in India, therefore the requirement for a quick bowling all-rounder won’t arise. If Pakistan scores 300 runs, the other team will find it extremely difficult to catch up “Added he.
