“But, in this stage, each group wanting on the group phases can be considering, ‘Wow, you bought to begin nicely’. And I count on England and West Indies to return out of that group [Group 1 in the Super 12s]. [I predict that the team] that tops this group will get to the ultimate.(*24*)If 5 Asian groups come by way of and you’ve got New Zealand there… that is a more durable group; I’m wanting ahead to some high-octane motion.
“It’s going to be close call for me between Pakistan and New Zealand [with India being the other team to get through from Group 2 to the semis]. My heart says I would love to see a Pakistan there, but New Zealand find ways to always punch above their weight. They are a pretty well-rounded team with a great leader in Kane Williamson.”
