World Cup 2024: Ex-Indian cricketer believes Pakistan, India will make it to semis

As International Cricket Council (ICC) gears up for the upcoming T20I World Cup 2024, which is set to be played in the United States and the West Indies, fans couldn’t help but wonder how will different teams perform in the mega event.

Expressing his views on the pressing question, former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh, who has also been appointed as the World Cup’s ambassador, has said that he sees India and Pakistan reaching the semi-finals of the mega event.

Other two teams, the former all-rounder believes will reach the eliminators are Australia and England.

Yuvraj, who won the 2007 T20 World Cup, will be attending the promotional events in the US before and during the World Cup, including the most-anticipated clash of the tournament between Pakistan and India in New York on June 9.

The ex-cricketer further said that he is excited to be part of the event where he etched his name in history by hitting six sixes in an over against England in 2007.

“Some of my fondest cricketing memories have come from playing at the T20 World Cup, including hitting six sixes in an over, so it’s very exciting to be part of this edition, which is set to be the biggest one yet,” Yuvraj said as quoted by the ICC.

“The West Indies is a great place to play cricket with the fans coming to watch creating a vibe that is completely unique to that part of the world, while cricket is also expanding in the US and I’m excited to be part of that growth through the T20 World Cup.

“India’s clash against Pakistan in New York is going to be one of the biggest sporting fixtures in the world this year, so it’s a privilege to be a part of and to witness the best players in the world playing in a new stadium.”

It is worth mentioning that 20 qualifying teams are divided into four groups of five, from which the top two teams of every group will make their way to the Super 8 round.

In that stage, qualifying teams will once again be divided into two groups of four, from which the top two teams will make their way to the semi-final and then the winners will play the final on June 29.
