Cricket fans across the world are eagerly waiting for the big clash of India and Pakistan ever since the T20 World Cup schedule was announced. Finally, the day has arrived. The neighboring countries and the arch-rivals are all set to take on each other tonight.
India has dominated Pakistan in the T20 cricket. Both the teams faced each other in eight games and India won seven of them. Pakistan only won once against India in the T20Is. In the T20 World Cup, India leads with a winning record of 5-0.
Pakistan will be looking forward to beating India at any cost but that is not going to be an easy task. India looks mighty powerful with a strong batting lineup that goes very deep. It features pinch-hitters right from the top. Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Rishab Pant, Surya Kumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, and Hardik Pandya – everyone is coming off from the IPL and are in a good form. Pakistan will bank on its pacers Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Hasan Ali to tackle India’s batting order.
The lack of middle-order depth may also hurt Pakistan a bit. Overall, India looks stronger. But India vs Pakistan match runs on emotions and nothing else. So, the team which holds its nerves better will win the game. The match will be held in Dubai International Stadium and starts at 07.30 PM IST.
