India can easily defeat Pakistan in ICC World Cup 2019: Aaron
Mumbai : Though he did not do anything memorable in the Indian Premier League 2019, Varun Aaron knows exactly how to get the limelight; talking about India's chances against the arch-rival Pakistan, he said Men in Blue will win the game with an ease.
"We have a much better team than Pakistan, there is no reason why we shouldn't win the match against Pakistan. I feel India has developed a fierce rivalry with Australia off late and the intensity of India-Australia matches are almost outdoing the intensity of India-Pakistan matches. The rivalry between India and Pakistan will always be there, but the match to look out for will be the India-Australia one," Aaron told ANI.
He also talked about Shahid Afridi's controversial statement over Gautam Gambhir in his recently released book.
"Everybody wants to make the book interesting for the readers. But as far as I know, all India-Pakistan cricketers have good relations off the field. Knowing all the Pakistan players, we are just like brothers from another country. All of the guys speak to each other in Punjabi, otherwise I don't see anything much serious in this issue," Aaron said.
Talking more over the ICC World Cup 2019, Aaron said that Team India has all those elements that can bring the cup home.
"I feel we have one of the best chances of winning the World Cup with the side we have. We've got an unbelievable batting lineup and our bowlers have been great of late. All the players have experience in the overseas conditions so I don't think anyone should have questions. Our bowling line-up is a varied line-up. You got Bhuvi who can swing the bowl, Bumrah can bowl really at the front and in the death, Shami bowls with great speed and I really hope they win the Cup back," he said.
Aaron has played 9 Tests and 9 ODIs for India in which he has taken 18 and 11 wickets respectively.
