Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed takes a sly dig at India ahead of World Cup

Ahead of the quadrennial tournament, Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed feels that the Men in Green have an advantage over India going into the 2019 ICC World Cup which begins May 30 in England & Wales. 

India lock horns with arch-rivals Pakistan on June 16 and the high profile clash is expected to be one of the most highly anticipated fixtures of the tournament. 

Taking a sly dig at the Men in Blue ahead of the clash, Sarfaraz feels that Pakistan will take all fixures in the World Cup as a clash against India. Here's what the skipper had to say.

“For us, all nine matches are important so we will take every match as a match against India. We have beaten India in a bigger event recently so we will have that advantage," Sarfraz was quoted as saying.

However, the comments made by the skipper did not go down well with the Indian fans and instead of a severe backlash, he was brutally trolled by Twitter. Take a look.

Pakistan recently announced their 15-member squad for the World Cup and surprisingly, Mohammed Amir misses out but he has been provided another opportunity to excel during the ODI series against England.

The ICC set May 23 as the deadline for teams to change their World Cup squad without seeking permission.

Amir, who took 3-16 in the Champions Trophy final, has taken just five wickets in the 14 ODIs in which he has since played. That left the selectors with no other choice than to drop him for the World Cup.
