The two arch-rivals will play each other on June 16 at Manchester.Over the years, India have defeated Pakistan on all 6 occasions in World Cup history. This year, India are being considered overwhelming favourites in the tournament – the likes of Harbhajan Singh and R Ashwin feel Pakistan will stand no chance against India two weeks from now.India have traditionally had a better batting line-up than Pakistan. In recent years, as it stands, India boast of a far better bowling attack than Pakistan.At Salaam Cricket 2019, Younis Khan agreed that India’s bowling attack is much more balanced than Pakistan’s.”India have a better bowling attack than Pakistan. 3 to 4 of their pacers can bowl over 140, 145+ kmph. India also have quality spinners. Bowlers will win you 60 to 70 percent matches.”Bumrah can surely be the most successful bowler in the 2019 World Cup. He is a specialist bowler across formats,” he said.Earlier in the day on Salaam Cricket 2019, Harbhajan Singh even said the India vs England match was going to be much bigger than the India vs Pakistan match.”India vs Pakistan is not as big as India vs England. Maybe from the media perspective, India vs Pakistan is more hyped up. But from a cricketing aspect, India vs England is more important. India can beat this Pakistan team 9 and a half times out of 10 times,” Harbhajan Singh said.However, former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq, who has been part of some riveting India-Pakistan contests in the past, said anything can happen in India-Pakistan clashes in the World Cup.advertisement”Logically, Bhajji is right but Pakistan is a dangerous team. In cricket, you cannot say anything. This Pakistan team is capable. There was a collapse in the last match. India have a better chance. As he said, India and England are the two favourites.”Given the rivalry, intensity… You never know what can happen in World Cups. Pakistan were strong in the 1990s yet India would win every time in World Cups,” Misbah said at Salaam Cricket 2019.Also Read | Salaam Cricket 2019: R Ashwin predicts India vs England World Cup 2019 finalAlso Read | Virat Kohli’s hunger to perform great positive for India at World Cup 2019: Misbah-ul-HaqAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Oxford shooting armed standoff ends after shootout between police and gunman

The incident is not being treated as terrorism. Witness earlier described hearing the gunshots ringing out during the afternoon. There were reports the suspect was shooting from a balcony.Janet Borgerson was in the nearby Hotel Malmaison when she heard “explosive cracks” she thought were holiday festivities before another series of “loud bangs”.”Again, I thought the second round were firecrackers. I noticed hotel bar staff ushering people inside,” she said. Ms Borgerson, who is visiting the city from America, said guests were later told they were “perfectly safe” and allowed to leave the hotel by an armed officer who seemed to indicate he was expecting a siege.

Thank you to everyone for your understanding and patience while we worked to resolve the incident safely. We are grateful for the support of members of the public and local businesses. If you’re coming in to Oxford today you should not experience any further disruption.— TVP Oxford (@TVP_Oxford) May 8, 2018 An armed siege sparked by reports of a man with a gun in Oxford has ended “peacefully” after around 14 hours.Thames Valley Police said shots were fired from a residential property in Paradise Square in the city centre – just yards from Oxford castle – with officers returning fire.Nearby streets were cordoned off by officers who were called to the scene at around 1.15pm. Negotiations with the man took place through Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning.At around 6.30am on Tuesday, the force said the incident has been resolved and that road closures in the area had been lifted. One person was treated for non-life threatening injuries, paramedics said.A Thames Valley Police spokesman said: “Shortly before 3am today a 24-year-old man from Oxford was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. He is currently in police custody.” A nearby resident, who did not want to be named, said he first heard two loud bangs early in the morning, but thought it was just Bank Holiday fireworks.Later that day, he said he witnessed the start of the altercation between an armed man and the police, during which he heard around 20 shots exchanged.He said: “I could hear a female negotiator and an armed response man trying to get him to put his hands up, let go of the gun, keep his hands on show and things like that.” read more
