The world’s tallest fast bowler Mohammad Irfan yesterday said he could win next year’s World Cup for Pakistan single-handedly after regaining complete fitness from a hip bone injury which had sidelined him for 6 months. Mohammad Irfan, was talking at a training camp in Lahore following his long lay-off.
“I am feeling good fitness and of course the target is to win the World Cup for Pakistan. It’s a big event, every player feels honoured to play it. In Australia pitches are very bouncy and are suitable for me and obviously I got a height factor and I can do well. If I managed to sustain my 100 per cent fitness I can win everything all alone, single handedly,” he said.
Mohammad Irfan was injured during the T20 series against South Africa in November last year in Dubai, missing Pakistan’s series against Sri Lanka, tour to South Africa, Asia Cup and the World T20.
