Well i think even though Pakistan will try their best to win victory against india or any other country they have blamed the whole squad that they play cricket for money which is basically not true thing. They play for passion we have got the best ranked bowlers saeed ajmal, Hafeez. They should work on the batting line squad. I have checked the ranking and after looking at it i am not satified because they are ranking the team by how many games they played and how many of them they have won and lost. They should rank by looking at the points how much they have earned and in overall Pakistan have earned alots of points in every kind of cricket So please stop hating Pakistan for no reason they have been champions alot of time Dont forget my word and the time that we won the 1992 world cup in australia and newzealand they next worldcup in 2015 going to be held in the same arena the glory is calling the champions back in the tournament to win the cup again

Pakistan will loose at least two out omits first three matches . They are no match forIndia , New Zealand , England and South Africa . Pakistan has too many past their prime and non performing players : Shoaib Malik , Misbah , Kamran Akmal , Imran Farhat .

If Pakistan take their catches, they will win it. The failure to take catches in the 2013 world cup was the reason why they didn't knock India out of the world cup and win it themselves!

no doubt they can win the last edition of ct but for that they will have to show their best.they have best bowling attack but uncertain batting lineup.i hope pakistani batting line up will not let down their bowling attack. best of luck team pakistan!

To win the CT Pakistan will have to bat full 50 overs.i think that will be the key as they have relatively new batting line up.only misbah and shoaib in the middle order.As far their bowling I think Irfan will be surprised package for most of the teams even for India and South Africa who have already faced him.Also new commer Asad.in this format 1st match for every team is very crucial.Its sort of a knock out if u lose first game it will be very hard to come back.

Pakistan are favourites to win Champions Trophy because none of their players played in IPL.
