Former Pakistan players Misbah-ul-Haq and Shoaib Malik picked their two finalists in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023. India, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand are through to the knock-outs.
Pakistan need a miracle against England to surpass New Zealand’s net run-rate However, it is almost impossible and this is what Pakistani greats think.
None of them took their team’s name. Misbah and Shoaib was asked to name their finalists on ASports.
“India and Australia will clash in the final,” Shoaib Malik said.
“India and South Africa will be my two finalists,” Misbah said.
Misbah further lauded the Men in Blue.
“All four teams are strong and can beat each other on their day. However, I think India are a much better side than the remaining three. Their balance is better,” he said.
India will take on New Zealand in the first semi-final at the Wankhede Stadium on November 15. In the second knock-out, South Africa will try their luck against Australia at the Eden Gardens on November 16.
