Pakistan’s chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq is confident that the national team will break its six-match losing streak in the World Cup against India when it takes on the arch-rival at the mega-event on June 16.
“People take a Indo-Pak match very seriously and some even go on to say that ‘we will be happy even if only we can win against India during the World Cup’,” said Inzamam.
“I’m hopeful that we will end our losing streak against India in World Cup matches,” he told a Pakistan Cricket website.
The veteran of 120 Tests, however, said that the World Cup is not just about the match against India, and “Pakistan have the potential to beat other sides as well“.
Inzamam, who is under-fire in recent times for making late changes in the World Cup squad, spoke about the difficulties of selecting national team and the pressure that comes with it.
“People think it is easy to jot down 14-15 players in order to form a squad but it’s nothing like that because there is a lot of pressure,” Inzamam said.
