KARACHI: Former Pakistan captain and star all-rounder Shahid Afridi coined India as one of the favourites to win the forthcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022, scheduled in October.
Following India’s dominant T20I series victory over England with one match to spare, the former Pakistan captain took to Twitter and praised the men in blue for their outstanding performance.
“India have played outstanding cricket and deserve to win the series. Really impressive bowling performance,” Afridi wrote.
“They’ll surely be one of the favourites for the T20 World Cup in Australia,” he added.
