The Team PAKISTAN:
It´s certain that Pakistan will be unpredictable. At the Champions Trophy in England two years ago, they were routed by India by 124 runs in the opening match before thrashing them by a massive 180 runs in the final.
Under Sarfraz Ahmed, Pakistan have some exciting talent — from Mohammad Amir to Usman Shinwari to Hasan Ali. If their vulnerable batting comes good they could repeat the exploits of Imran Khan who led the team to their only World Cup in Australia in 1992.
GAME CHANGER:Babar Azam has an ODI average of over 51 and has hit eight centuries and 10 50s.
Mickey Arthur, looking forward to his first World Cup as a coach, said:
“We can’t wait for the World Cup. We’ve started our planning, I’m sure, like every international team has.

So everything we do at the moment is preparation leading up to the World Cup so that we can hit the tournament fully prepared and ready to go.”
