“They definitely have the ability to achieve that result. If Pakistan plays to its potential, then they can beat any team in the world including India. Twenty20 cricket is such a format that the whole match can turn in the space of a few balls or even one incident and the Pakistan versus India match will be no different. If Pakistan play at their best, they can certainly beat India,” Wahab Riaz told in an interview

“I feel that I should have represented Pakistan on more occasions than I did”: Wahab Riaz
Speaking to PakPassion.net, Wahab Riaz mentioned that he should have played more international games for Pakistan than he has currently played. Also, he opined that shifting of home matches of Pakistan to UAE turned out to be detrimental for all Pakistan Pacers. Further, Riaz added that he hopes to play more games for his national side.
“Yes, I feel that I should have represented Pakistan on more occasions than I did. But the major setback for me was when Pakistan’s home matches had to be shifted to UAE where spinners were needed more than pace-bowlers. That period of playing home matches in UAE was detrimental to the careers of a lot of Pakistani pace-bowlers. including myself. But who knows what the future holds, there might yet be a few more international matches to come for myself,” Riaz concluded.
