Pakistan skipper has placed his money on India to prevail over Australia in the cricket World Cup semi-final as he believes the home team will struggle for spin options at the SCG that is traditionally helpful to the slower bowlers.
India has been on a roll with seven straight wins, dramatically turning things around after going through a winless Test and ODI tour of Australia prior to the mega tournament.
Four-time winners Australia, who defeated Pakistan in a last-eight clash here yesterday, will lock horns with defending champions India at the Sydney Cricket Ground in the second semifinal on March 26.
Defending champions India have been on a roll with seven straight wins, defying the form book after going through a winless Test and ODI tour of Australia prior to the tournament.
“India has got a chance because they are playing in Sydney and the Sydney pitch everybody knows there’s a little bit for the spinners, and both their spinners are bowling well,” he said.
