Legendary pacer Glenn McGrath on Thursday made a critical remark on Pakistan’s current squad for ICC Champions Trophy, led by Sarfraz Ahmed, that it is not what it used to be.
“Although not the same powerful force they once used to be, Pakistan still have some quality bowlers and an experienced batting line-up,” he said as quoted by PTI.
McGrath’s remark came just ahead of Pakastan’s highly-rated clash with neighbours India in the Champions Trophy match to be held at Birmingham on Sunday.
Pakistan have never won an ICC Champions Trophy title though they have a fair head-to-head record against India–Pakistan have defeated India twice at the mini World Cup event.
Australian veteran still has his faith in India and believes that India will have the upper hand unless Pakistan play some mystical cricket.
“It's always a big game whenever India play Pakistan. You never know Pakistan might just pull off a surprise on their day,” the 47-year-old added.
