ICC Champions Trophy 2017: Glenn McGrath on India-Pakistan clash: Not the same it used to be

ICC CT 2017: McGrath also pressed and said Australia will be favourites, he said, “I will always back Australia. England are going to be tough to beat

Glenn McGrath, former Australian legend and a great student of the game has spoken his heart out and this time on the big India vs Pakistan clash that is 2 days away. McGrath spoke to PTI and spoke extensively on various issues. India take on Pakistan on Sunday and that is probably the biggest limited overs clash of the year. Pakistan are already a depleted unit as Umar Akmal is not a part of their team. Team India on the other hand is in red-hot form as they start their title defense.

McGrath said, “It’s always a big game whenever India play Pakistan. Although not the same powerful force they once used to be, Pakistan still have some quality bowlers and an experienced batting line-up. You never know Pakistan might just pull off a surprise on their day,” he told reporters on Wednesday. He said India will be among the semi-finalists of the marquee event. “India is a very good ODI team, expect them to do well. They should be in the top four along with Australia and England. The fourth team would be either South Africa or New Zealand.”

He also spoke about Indian pace bowlers as he has worked closely with them at the MRF pace academy, he added, “Indian bowlers have really done well in the last two- three years. I think India have got one of the most potent attacks and the pace-spin combination will provide them an edge over other teams.”

As India take on arch rivals Pakistan one person is going to have his eyes fixed to the game and that is the Australian legend.

He also pressed and said Australia will be favourites, he said, “I will always back Australia. England are going to be tough to beat at home and have just beaten South Africa in a ODI series. Ben Stokes will be a key player for the host.”
