Brian Lara feels that Pakistan are capable of winning the World Cup in England and Wales later this year.
Lara, who is arguably the best batsman the West Indies has ever produced, believes that Pakistan could taste World Cup glory for the first time since 1992 as they put up an exceptional performance to win the Champions Trophy in 2017.
If Pakistan play similarly in the World Cup, Lara sees no reason why they can’t go all the way.
However, he feels that the West Indies are in the same boat and could also spring a surprise at the tournament.
“I was not surprised when Pakistan won the Champions Trophy,” he was quoted as saying by the Hindustan Times. “I felt that even though they are a team that are inconsistent, they do have players that can win any tournament.
“The West Indies are similar. Very inconsistent, but on their day they can beat any team.”
