Former Pakistan captain and World Cup brand ambassador Shahid Afridi predicted that Pakistan, Australia, India, and New Zealand will reach the semi-finals of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi, who is also the brand ambassador for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, predicted the semi-finalists for the tournament, which runs from June 1 to 29 in the USA and West Indies.

In a video released by the ICC, Afridi expressed his confidence in Pakistan, captained by Babar Azam, to advance to the final. Afridi also endorsed India and Australia for strong semifinal showings. Additionally, he placed his faith in New Zealand for the last spot in the top four due to their adaptability across diverse conditions.

“I feel Pakistan should play the final. I’ll go with Australia, India and in those conditions, I will go with New Zealand,” he said.

Shahid Afridi was announced as the ambassador for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 on Friday, May 24th, joining an esteemed group that includes Usain Bolt, Chris Gayle, and Yuvraj Singh. Notably, Afridi expressed his anticipation for the India-Pakistan clash on June 9.

“The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is an event that is very close to my heart. From being Player of the Tournament in the inaugural edition to lifting the trophy in 2009, some of my favorite career highlights have come from competing on this stage,” Afridi said.

“I am particularly excited to witness the India v Pakistan fixture on 9 June. It is one of the great rivalries in sport and New York will be a fitting stage for this unmissable encounter between two great teams,” he added.

Afridi has participated in six T20 World Cups for Pakistan, shining as the inaugural edition’s Player of the Tournament. His standout performances in Pakistan’s 2009 victory, notably excelling in the semi-final and final, earned him Player of the Match honors in both crucial games.
