Younis Khan firmly believes that both India and Pakistan have an equal chance of triumphing in their Asia Cup clash in Dubai on September 19.
The legendary Pakistan batsman could not pick the team he thought would be favourites going into the match, but Pakistan hold the edge as they beat India in their last meeting, which came in the final of last year’s Champions Trophy in England.
While he was unable to pick which team would win, Younis did say that both India and Pakistan need to play bilateral series on a regular basis.
“A series like The Ashes can be played between the two teams,” he was quoted as saying by Geo News. “It doesn’t have to be every year. It would be every two years or three years.”
Meanwhile, Younis feels that the Pakistan Super League (PSL) will be hugely beneficial going forward as it will continue producing an increasing number of talented players.
“Bangladesh and India both have their own cricket leagues and their cricket has vastly improved,” Younis, who is Pakistan’s highest run-scorer in Test cricket, said. “Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Fakhar Zaman and Shaheen Afridi all came through the PSL.”
