Pak 'favourites' to win World T20 Cup, says Wasim Akram
Karachi, Aug 26 (ANI): Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram has picked his country as one of the favourites to win the World Twenty20 tournament, scheduled to begin next month in Sri Lanka.
"Pakistan are favourites. Players like Imran Nazir and Abdur Razzaq have the ability to turn a match on its head and there is no reason why Pakistan can't do well. They also have a very good chance against Australia in the upcoming series in the UAE," the Daily Times quoted Akram, as saying.
However, Akram also advised the team's batsmen to adopt a more aggressive and positive approach after having witnessed them in their recent series in Sri Lanka.
"At times, I thought I was watching a Test match. They need to maintain a strike-rate of over 130 and a boundary should be followed by singles to keep the scoreboard moving. Their approach needs to become more adventurous if they want more success in the format," he said.
Pakistan reached the final of the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup in 2007 to lose to India but won the next edition held in England in 2009. (ANI)
