Former Pakistan player Rashid Latif has predicted that neighbours India and Pakistan are likely to met in the final of the ongoing Champions Trophy 2017 in England. In a rare event, three sub-continental teams, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, have made it to the semi-finals of an ICC ODI event. These three teams have joined England in the semi-final line-up of the tournament. India will play Bangladesh in the semis while Pakistan face England.
“I think this is the first time that a country which was one pre-partition has now three semi-finalists. The most viewership in cricket is in India and Pakistan. I want to thank everyone who supported Pakistan after the loss to India. But we need to learn from our mistake to beat England. I think we will reach the final and will play against India,” he said.
India began their campaign in Champions Trophy campaign with a win over Pakistan. India are the defending champions and are looking to win the title for a second time in a row.
“What better than an India-Pakistan final. The whole world will see. Cricket is like power as most people understand, play and watch the game. It’s a proud moment for the sub-continent,” Latif said in a video.
He also talked about his controversial video where is blasting former India cricketer Virender Sehwag about his tweets and the response given by Manoj Tiwary.
“I am receiving a lot of message that I should reply to Tiwary. I don’t watch. I only speak and people listen. We don’t want to break. We want to unite the two countries. There should be a bilateral series between the two nations.
“The Indian media and Pakistan media are happy about controversies. They think about hits. No one thinks about uniting,” he said.
