Waqar Younis predicts the two finalists of ICC Cricket World Cup 2023


The cricket lovers are eagerly waiting for the mega event that will take place in India from October 5. As the excitement mounts, Pakistan’s legendary fast bowler Waqar Younis has revealed his picks for the two teams he thinks will make it to the final of the tournament.

Waqar is a cricket legend who has made a lasting impact on the game with his pace and swing. He played 349 international matches for Pakistan, taking an impressive 373 wickets in ODIs and 416 wickets in Tests. He also became the youngest Pakistan Test captain, leading the team at the age of just 22 years and 15 days. With such a rich experience behind him, Waqar’s picks become even more interesting.

In a recent talk with Star Sports, Waqar boldly named the ODI World Cup 2023 finalists but did not include his own country, Pakistan. The exclusion of Babar Azam-led side from Waqar’s picks did not shock many as he had reportedly called the Pakistan cricket team weak a few days ago.Waqar's picks for finalists do not feature Pakistan.

Waqar's first pick is India, who have won the ODI World Cup twice and have a strong cricketing tradition. As hosts of the 2023 World Cup, India will have the priceless benefit of playing on home soil. This home benefit often makes a big difference, as the passionate Indian cricket fans come out in large numbers to cheer for their team.

Waqar's second pick is England, who are the defending ODI World Cup champions. England have changed their fortunes in white-ball cricket in recent years and have become a powerful force in the limited-overs format. Their aggressive approach to the game has won them praise and fans around the world. England’s record in white-ball cricket and their ambition to keep their title in India make them a strong candidate to reach the finals, according to Waqar’s picks.
