Herschelle Gibbs, the former South African batsman, has made Pakistan a favorite for the next T20 World Cup. According to Gibbs, Pakistan is the favorite to win the T20 World Cup alongside the archrival Champions India and ODI World Cups, England.
The 47-year-old added that Asians will take advantage of the situation in the United African States and expects them to take part in the competition. Gibbs stated Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will be a challenge in this huge event, apart from three favorites, since they have what it takes to reach the finals.
The former opener was recognized as one of the top cricket batsmen in T20 by Pakistan’s all-format Captain, Babar Azam.
“Pakistan is always in a mixture of uncertainty. Obviously, [powerful sides] India and England. Much is up to the wickets. I don’t think Western Indians will be as deadly if they turn a little since they prefer the ball arriving on the bat. They love not-turned wickets. It doesn’t always match the West Indies if there is a spin,” Gibbs said.
He added that the three most dangerous T20 batters in the world are Babar, the Indian captain, Virat Kohli, and the English wicker Jos Buttler. He stated that they rarely have hunger and that in that particular configuration it makes them the finest.
