Pakistan are favourites to win ICC World Cup 2019 title: Fakhar Zaman

New Delhi, August 25: Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman believes that his team has shown brilliant form in the recent past and as a result, they will enter the ICC?World Cup 2019 as firm favourites.
“The current Pakistan team combination is brilliant and the results we have recently produced are good proof of that,” Zaman told Sky Sports.
“We will travel to England to win the title and not just to make up the numbers. I do feel that it is right for us to be labelled favourites for the 2019 World Cup as our team will be well equipped for this tournament,” he added.
However, the left-hander believes that their first concern should be the upcoming Asian Cup which will be played in the UAE next month.
“At the moment, I am fully focused on doing well in the upcoming Asia Cup,” he said. “Of course, the 2019 World Cup is an important tournament, but it’s far too early for me to start planning for it as there are other international assignments to take care of before that tournament.” (HT)
