Pakistani pace bowling legend Wasim Akram has stated that England can win the International Cricket Council Cricket World Cup 2015 in Australia, after he demolished their ambition there more than two decades ago. Mitchell Johnson is not going to be the threatening part as he is not the first left-arm pace bowler to put the frighteners on England around World Cup time, as Wasim Akram did the job in 1992.
The Pakistani pace superstar scored a quick 33 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and took 3 wickets considering 49 runs in a man of the match performance as Pakistan won by 22 runs in the World Cup finale.
The Mirror reported that Wasim Akram said maybe it was their event, and added that it is almost 23 years since Pakistan has won the ICC World Cup, but demanded forcefully that for him and the people back home they remember it like it was just the other day.
Wasim Akram said that they did not discerned at the time how big it was, and added that it was only when they got back to Pakistan that they noticed how proud people were of them. He stated that when they reached at Lahore airport the 20 minutes road took seven hours to cross the people.
Wasim added that he trusts Pakistan has the chance, and said that at this time any team could be in rhythm, insisting that it could be England.
The former pace superstar said that England have a very stable ODI team and if they score runs on the scoreboard then he trusts they have a good bowling attack that can win matches, so he added that they should have a good tough World Cup.
