‘Pakistan have every chance of winning T20 World Cup 2022’

Pace legend Waqar Younis has said that he believes Pakistan have every chance of winning this year’s International Cricket Council’s (ICC) T20 World Cup.

“We stand a really good chance of doing well at this World Cup,” Waqar said while speaking to ICC Digital in Melbourne.

The Babar Azam-led side is currently rated third on the ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings and will travel to Australia later this year full of confidence after some good results in the shortest format of the game over the last 12 months.

In last year’s T20 World Cup, Pakistan reached the semi-finals — staged in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) — and failed against Australia, the only side that beat them since November 2021.

But Waqar believes that the pitches in Australia are good and he thinks that the Men In Green can perform well under the conditions there.

“The pitches in Australia are generally very good batting pitches and Pakistan do have good batters who can really play well in these conditions,” he said.

“Babar is definitely going to be the key batter at the top of the order.”

“I think he (Babar) will have the impact that he has always had and then, of course, Rizwan is playing very well and the bowling attack they have got is one of the best in the world,” Waqar said.
