Legendary West Indies batsman Sir Viv Richards believes that Pakistan are capable of winning the World Cup.
Pakistan are currently within touching distance of the semi-finals and will need to defeat Bangladesh in their final group stage match at Lord’s on Friday to be in the running to reach the last four.
Given how Pakistan have won their last three games against South Africa, New Zealand and Afghanistan, Richards feels that the men in green can qualify for the semi-finals and go on to win the tournament for the first time since 1992.
“To the Pakistan coaching staff and players themselves, I wish them the best of luck in the remaining matches. All Pakistan need to do now is to continue believing in themselves and that belief comes as you continue to win, Inshallah. Good Luck to Pakistan,” Richards was quoted as saying by PakPassion.
