Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar predicted the winner of India vs Australia ICC World Cup 2019 match at The Oval on Sunday. Hailing India as a balanced bowling side, Akhtar said Virat Kohli’s men will ‘crush’ Australia.
“India has a far better chance not because of I am just saying but I think the balance of the bowling lies with India. They have spinners, they have good fast bowlers,” Akhtar in a video for his official YouTube channel.
“India has more ammunition when it comes to swing when it comes to bowling when it comes to taking up the pressure. So, I think the pressure isn’t going to be on Indians tomorrow, it is going to be on Australians. I think India is going into this match as favourites because they have superior spinners than the Australians and with Shami’s addition they will become unbeatable,” Akhtar said.
Akhtar, who has been doing a pre-match show for almost all the important games of World Cup, also wanted India to make a change in their Playing XI.
