“This will be my last World Cup and I want Pakistan to win it. I believe there is a fantastic combination of young and senior players in this squad,”

Malik told PakPassion.

Stretching an international career as long as 20 years for Pakistan, Malik focused on his own performance rather than anything else.

“I don’t focus on what is being said about me, but rather focus on how I can perform on a consistent basis,” Malik told.

In the 282 ODIs played for Pakistan, he has scored 7481 runs at an average of 35.12. He has also played 111 T20 internationals where he stored 2263 runs at an average of 30.58.

“If I think this is my last World Cup, I wouldn’t not do well. Rather, I am going to take it as if I am beginning my career,” he said.

Malik once played a World Cup for Pakistan which was in 2007 when Pakistan crashed out in the group stages after losing out to debutants to Ireland.

Pakistan opened their World Cup 2019 facing West Indies on 31 May in their first match.
