Pakistan chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq believes that the national team are very capable of winning the World Cup and added that he sees the side “at No. 1”.
Pakistan have struggled in ODIs this year as they were beaten 3-2 by South Africa and whitewashed 5-0 by Australia.
In the recently concluded five-match ODI series against England, Pakistan lost 4-0.
Furthermore, the men in green haven’t won the World Cup since 1992.
Despite this, Inzamam is backing Pakistan to come out on top at the tournament.
“I see my team at No. 1,” Inzamam was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo. “I am sure all teams are working hard for the World Cup, but I think Pakistan have the capability to win the World Cup.”
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.
