KARACHI: Former captain of the Pakistan cricket team Moin Khan on Friday said that self-belief would be the key for the national team in the upcoming World Cup scheduled to start May 30.

Speaking to Geo.tv, Khan expressed confidence in the Pakistani team and said the players had enough talent to produce good results in the mega sports event.

“I will say that the players will have to be fearless,” he said. “Self-belief will be the key … if they start every match with the belief that they can do win it, then they will surely do it.

"Keep the morale high in every game,” Khan added. 

The former wicket-keeper batter backed captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, saying he was a good leader and could bring best from the players. “He is a good captain and he can deliver,” Khan said.

“As far as his batting position is concerned, I will say that it is up to Sarfaraz to decide. He should come to bat according to the team’s requirement. He’s a player who can bat at any position and has proved it in past as well,” he said.

In response to a  question, the member of the victorious 1992 squad said he was confident of a good performance by the Pakistani team. “My best wishes and prayers are with Sarfaraz and the team.

"I hope they return as victorious,” Khan said.
