Former English fast bowler, Dominic Cork, has offered his insights into the cricketing fortunes of India and Pakistan following his stint as a commentator during the recently concluded Asia Cup 2023.

Cork, at 52 years old, has hailed India as the frontrunners in comparison to Pakistan. His admiration for India’s performance in the tournament was evident, as he described their victory as a comprehensive one. The Indian cricket team’s prowess and strength were lauded by Cork, who had witnessed their dominance throughout the competition.

When it came to Pakistan, Cork couldn’t hide his concerns regarding their prospects in the upcoming World Cup. He noted that the Pakistani team appeared disorganized and disoriented. Despite this, he acknowledged Pakistan’s penchant for surprising everyone when least expected, emphasizing that they should never be underestimated.

Cork’s assessment of India didn’t stop at praise; he went on to describe them as a “complete package.” He highlighted India’s depth and resilience, even in the absence of key players like Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav. The former cricketer reiterated that India looked the strongest, while Pakistan’s outlook was less certain.

During the conversation, Cork briefly touched upon Sri Lanka, highlighting the emergence of promising young talents such as Dunith Wellalage, a budding all-rounder, and Matheesha Pathirana, drawing parallels to the legendary Lasith Malinga. Despite the potential of these players, Cork reiterated his belief that India remained the team to beat.

It is worth noting that India convincingly defeated Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2023 final, bowling them out for a mere 50 runs and chasing the target down in just 6.1 overs. In contrast, Pakistan faced defeats against both Sri Lanka and India, raising questions about their team composition and strategy. The Men in Green have yet to announce their squad for the impending World Cup, adding an element of uncertainty to their preparations.
