Brian Lara hopes to witness an India-Pakistan final in WC 2019
Former West Indies legend Brian Lara predicted India as favorites to claim the World Cup title.
While the cricketing interactions between sub continental arch rivals hit an all-time low in barometer following never ending political disarray, Caribean living legend has foreseen a repeat of the 2017 ICC Champions' Trophy final where these twos locked horns. Speaking to media at the Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai on Sunday, Lara said,
"The Champions Trophy final a couple of years ago, Pakistan versus Indiaâ€¦ that would be a wonderful final to see again."
However, unlike the ICC 2017 Champions Trophy final result, Lara said that Virat Kohli's India are favorites to turn the tie around this time around.
"India is capable of playing all around the world. They start as favorites," the 49 year old said.
