I suppose, between the main teams, India appear favorites. They play the fearless brand of T20 cricket. England is also at the top of the ladder. I think New Zealand too. And you never know about the West Indies. If their main players are in, they have a tendency to scare,” Akram said on ARY news.

Talking about the chances of his own country’s team winning the T20 World Cup, Wasim Akram said that Pakistan needs to work on it before they can have a strong chance to win the tournament after 2009.

"Pakistan needs to work on their team combination. Obviously, being a Pakistani, I would want Pakistan to win the World Cup. That will be a dream come true for all of us, especially the young captain, and if they need to improve their combination, find the best XI, they can fight. The problem of No. 5 and No. 6 needs to be solved," Akram pointed out.
