DUBAI: A Dubai based paper has listed down five reasons why Pakistan can win this T20 World Cup which is being played in Australia.
In its report, Khaleej Times said Pakistan bounced back from their two defeats at the start of the tournament to reach the semifinals of the ICC T20 World Cup, albeit with a helping hand from the Netherlands. The Dutch pulled off a shock win over South Africa on Sunday, knocking the Proteas out of the tournament Down Under and giving Pakistan a lifeline.
The paper said that Pakistan capitalised on that by taming the Bangla Tigers to reach the semifinals.
It said that there was never a dull moment in Pakistan cricket and the World Cup needed these bunch of mavericks at the knockout stage following the early exit of hosts Australia. Now that they have reached the last four against all odds, Pakistan will fancy their chances of going all the way.
