Former Pakistan seamer Waqar Younis has admitted that it is possible the national team will make changes to their squad for their highly-anticipated World Cup clash against India in Manchester on Sunday.
This comes after Pakistan lost their previous World Cup match against Australia by 41 runs on Wednesday.
Given that the men in green have only won one of their first four World Cup games, Waqar feels like changes could be on the way, especially after he talked to head coach Mickey Arthur.
“It may be that Mickey Arthur looks at changing the team for Sunday. I spoke to Mickey in Taunton and he is thinking in terms of horses for courses, and I agree with him to an extent,” Waqar was quoted as saying by Geo.tv.
“The pitch there was good for pacers and he rightly went with four of them. The issue was not the nature of the plan, but the execution.”
Pakistan will play India on June 16 in Manchester, and the men in green will be looking to snap their winless streak against their arch-rivals as India have triumphed in their six World Cup meetings to date.
However, Pakistan can take confidence from the fact that they demolished India by 180 runs in the Champions Trophy final in 2017.
