Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir and iconic fast bowler Wasim Akram express confidence in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024, predicting success for both India and Pakistan in the tournament set to take place in West Indies and USA.
Pakistan reached the final of both the 2021 and 2022 T20 World Cups but faced defeats against Australia and England. Meanwhile, India secured a spot in the 2022 semi-finals but suffered a loss to England in the penultimate stage.
Here’s what Wasim Akram said on Pakistan’s chances in T20 World Cup 2024:
“Pakistan has a good chance in the T20 World Cup 2024 because they are a much better T20 team as compared to ODIs. That’s the format they like.
Here’s what Gautam Gambhir said on India’s chances in T20 World Cup 2024:
“India will do great in the T20 World Cup 2024 because India is a very well oiled machinery and capable of performing their best in all the three formats. Now it will be interesting to see what criteria they are going to use to pick the squad for the tournament. Is it going to be IPL based? Because the T20 World Cup 2024 is just a few days after the conclusion of the IPL 2024 season.”
It will be interesting to see if Team India will opt for players like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli for the T20 World Cup 2024, or if they will choose a completely fresh and younger squad for the tournament.
