Hope Pakistan can beat India in World Cup 2015: Inzamam-ul-Haq

Former Pakistani captain Inzamam-ul-Haq expressed his desire to see the national side breaking the jinx by defeating arch-rivals India in the first match of the upcoming World cup in Adelaide.

At the launch of a cricket academy in Lahore name after him, Pakistani legend hopes that the current team can defeat India in the opening game,”Throughout my career we beat India in many matches but for some reason we never managed to get the better of them in World Cup matches and it remains a disappointment for me. I hope that this Pakistan team can beat India in a World Cup game.”

Though Pakistan will feel the absence of Saeed Ajmal, Inzamam thinks that the other players need to step up and fill the gap.

“We also lost Waqar before the 92 World Cup and we had some fitness issues but under Imran’s captaincy the others filled in the gap and that is what is required in this event as well,” he recalled.

“I think it is very important to play as a complete unit and the players are fortunate to have seasoned campaigners like Waqar Younis, Mushtaq Ahmed, Moin Khan and Grant Flower to guide them,” Inzamam added.
