Pakistan spinner Shadab Khan firmly believes his side will do well at the World Cup, which begins in England and Wales on May 30.
Pakistan have struggled in ODIs this year as they lost 3-2 to South Africa and were whitewashed 5-0 by Australia in the United Arab Emirates.
They are currently trailing 2-0 in their ongoing five-match series against England and must win the last two games to end the series as a draw.
Despite their dismal run of form in the 50-over format, Shadab, who was declared fit for the World Cup after recovering from Hepatitis C, is confident that the men in green will shine during the quadrennial event.
Shadab Khan "Our team has 100% skills to do well in the World Cup. They're struggling but so are other teams. Pakistan are playing good cricket overall, but our bowlers are not doing well, they are not in rhythm but once they start clicking we will start winning games" #Cricket

“Our team has 100 percent [of the] skills to do well in the World Cup,” he was quoted as saying by Saj Sadiq on Twitter. “They’re struggling but so are other teams. Pakistan are playing good cricket overall, but our bowlers are not doing well, they are not in rhythm but once they start clicking we will start winning games.”
After the ongoing five-match ODI series against England, Pakistan will play two World Cup warm-up games against Afghanistan and Bangladesh in Bristol and Cardiff on May 24 and 26 respectively.
They will then begin their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on May 31.
