Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed has admitted that being underdogs going into the World Cup will make winning the tournament all the more special.
While quite a few former players have branded Pakistan as one of the frontrunners to lift the trophy, Sarfraz seems to think otherwise.
However, the 31-year-old is eager to lead his side to World Cup glory as they have not accomplished the feat since 1992.
“Pakistan is going into the World Cup as underdogs which is a good thing as we are not in the list of favourites,” he was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “I will ask everyone to pray for our success in the World Cup and we will try to do better than all the capabilities and talent we have.
“As a captain and player it is our wish to win the World Cup but even if we don’t win, I would like people to say that yes this team fought well.”
Pakistan will begin their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on May 31.
