Karachi: Pakistan's chief selector Moin Khan believes the national team's much-awaited World Cup game against India will be the best opportunity for them to break their winless jinx against the arch-rivals in the tournament history.

Pakistan have lost to India in all the five World Cup outings — in 1992, 1996, 1999, 2003 and the 2011 semi-final. "If I look at the World Cup history I think this time we have our best chance to avenge our defeats," Moin told Geo News in Sydney.

"This Indian team is not what it used to be and our players will try their best to defeat them this time," Moin said.

Moin, who took part in two of the five World Cup matches (1992 and 99), said the chance to create history will spur the players.

He pointed out that India was also struggling having faced problems in batting and bowling in Australia in recent months.
