British-Pakistani professional boxer Amir Khan landed himself in a bit of controversy after being asked to opine on Pakistan’s campaign at the cricket World Cup.

In what appears to be a slip of tongue, Khan said Pakistan have a chance to go all the way, but it all will depend on how they ‘fix the games’.

“Pakistan chances, I think like any other team in the world cup, I think they have a great chance. It just depends on the draw, depends on the match-fixing, on the matches how they fix the game,” he said.

The 32-year-old, however, believes the key to going deep into the mega event will be start on a strong note.

“I just feel that with the cricket its a very different sport, if you are starting very bad, it’s very hard to get your points back. So what Pakistan has to do in my opinion is to start very strong early,” he said (CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO.

Pakistan, meanwhile, began their campaign with a tame seven-wicket defeat at the hands of West Indies, before boucing back with a 14-run conquest of hosts England in their second match.

They are next scheduled to lock horns with Sri Lanka on Friday.
