Oops! Pakistan-born British boxer Amir Khan says Pakistan’s chances of winning World Cup ‘depend on match-fixing’

Slip of tongue or a Freudian slip?

Slip of tongue or a Freudian slip? Pakistani-born boxer Amir Khan seems to have opened up an unnecessary controversy after he made a few open remarks claiming that Pakistan’s chances of winning world cup depend on how they fix matches.

A video clip of Amir Khan has gone viral in which he is seen discussing cricket with other experts. Analyzing the prospects of Pakistan cricket team in the ongoing world cup, Amir Khan said that the results depend on various aspects including how the Pakistani cricket team fixes the games. Amir Khan’s statement has now made the Pakistani fans perplexed and red-faced.

“I think any team in the world cup have a great chance. It just depends on the draw, depends on match-fixing…on the matches how they fix the game. I think with cricket, it is a very difficult sport. If you are starting bad, it is hard to get the points back… In my opinion, Pakistan has to start very strong early,” said Amir Khan.

The candid statements by the London based Pakistani boxer have evoked mixed reactions with some attacking him for having no knowledge about the sport while some others have expressed their anger after he made a few candid statements.

The cricketing season of the year has begun with the ICC Cricket World cup in England where 10 teams are sweating out to attain the glory. Pakistan has already played two matches in the first round-robin stages of the tournament, losing the first one cheaply to underdogs West Indies while defeating the host England in their second game.

India led by Captain Virat Kohli is yet to begin their World cup adventures. India is set to take on South Africa on June 5. The latter have lost their both opening matches. South Africa will be hoping for redemption after their humiliating upset against Bangladesh.
