Wasim Akram discusses Pakistan’s chances at the 2023 World Cup in an open letter. Even though Babar Azam’s team has performed well in ODIs in the run-up to the Asia Cup and the ODI World Cup in 2023, legendary Pakistani fast bowler Wasim Akram said he doesn’t want expectations to put pressure on Babar Azam’s team.

Wasim Akram, a member of the 1992 World Cup-winning Pakistan team, praised Pakistan for its consistency in the lead-up to major competitions, saying that the team appeared content and at ease under Babar Azam.

Three of Pakistan’s batters are ranked in the top 5 of the ICC ODI rankings, with captain Babar leading the list as they entered the Asia Cup as the top-ranked ODI team. With one of the most feared bowling attacks in One Day Internationals, Pakistan appeared to be a well-rounded team. Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf are the ideal foils for Shaheen Afridi, who has a habit of striking first. Pakistan now has a top-notch all-rounder who is also a very effective leg-spinner in Shadab Khan.

Pakistan will enter major competitions, particularly those on the subcontinent, as one of the favourites for the first time in many years, having finally shed the reputation of being unpredictable.

“I like underdogs and underrated teams, like Pakistan. They shouldn’t enter as favourites, in my opinion. The Pakistani team has the proper preparation going on, and if you are a low-key team, you have a chance, Akram told Fox Sports.

“As far as preparation goes, physical preparation, mental preparation, acclimating to the pitches and weather, and so on they are on the right track. They appear content and happy, and since they are winning, everything is going well.”
