Pakistan’s middle-order batsman Younis Khan believes Pakistan will beat India in their first match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Younis Khan feels that this year’s World Cup will provide the country’s cricketers another opportunity to break the jinx of having never beaten India in the ICC Cricket World Cup.
Pakistan have never beaten India in any World Cup match since the event was launched in 1975. In the 2011 World Cup, India defeated Pakistan in the semi-final and later went on to win the tournament.
History is there to be changed and my feeling is this time we can change it and win against India in Adelaide,” Younis said.
The game between the arch-rivals, scheduled on February 15, is already been sold out and could be the most watched cricket match in the history. Younis said Pakistan have some very good performers and if every player could do his job responsibly and play like a unit, then they could beat India.
Younis Khan has been in good form off late and he was picked in the World Cup squad on the basis of his consistent performance in Test cricket. Pakistan have picked a well balanced squad for the World Cup 2015. Pakistan’s squad has a good blend of youth and experience.
Younis praised Misbah for restoring the pride and image of Pakistan cricket after the spot fixing scandal. “Misbah has played a big role in reviving Pakistan cricket after the spot fixing scandal and as a captain he has done a lot to bring stability to the team,” he said.
