Manchester | Jagran Sports Desk: Legendary Pakistani pacer Wasim Akram on Sunday said that his heart is favouring Pakistan but his mind in saying that India will win the match.

"It is a big game, the game of the World Cup as we call it. Mother of all games. I am relaxed as I am not playing. My heart says Pakistan but the mind says India are definitely the favourites to win the game. You'll hardly see locals in the stadium and it will be filled with fans from the countries,” said Akram.

Akram was asked who will win the match on which he said that India are the clear favourites.

"Absolutely India are favourites. The way they have played, controlled the game against Australia with their batting depth and bowling variations and variety. And of course, fielding has been phenomenal, something rarely seen in subcontinental sides and that is because they are physically very fit," said Akram.

India and Pakistan are facing each other for the seventh time in the World Cup. Pakistan after winning the toss elected to bowl first. India made just one change with Vijay Shankar coming in place of Shikhar Dhawan after he fractured his hand.
